Winchester The Essential
Recommended
Surrounded by the hills and plains of the South Downs 20km north of Southampton, Winchester is an ancient royal capital. This attractive town has preserved its character, retaining numerous buildings from the Middle Ages including its cathedral and Hospital of St Cross. After seeing the town, it is pleasant to stroll out along the river and the lanes up to St Giles Hill and St Catherine's Hill.
