Get to know the historical streets of Winchester
Walking around the city of Winchester we can get the feeling of two thousand years of history.
The main shopping thoroughfare is still on the line of that set out by the Romans. The Cathedral started by the Normans lies next to the location of the previous Saxon minster. It is still at the heart of the city today.
At the other end of the city are the ancient Westgate, and the Great Hall with the Round Table proudly on display.
Nearby is the area that Charles II designated for his new palace, with views across the city to the countryside around St. Catherine’s Hill.
The ancient capital of England still has much to offer.
