Discover Winchester 'The Birth of a Nation'


Visit the ancient capital of Wessex, the Home of King Alfred the Great.

Trace the footsteps of King Alfred from his statue in the Broadway to his last known resting place beneath Hyde Abbey Garden.

King Alfred will be your constant companion on this tour of Winchester's historic landmarks. You'll learn about the earlier history of Winchester and how it has evolved in more recent times.

Visit the Cathedral, over fifteen centuries of English history lie behind the massive Cathedral you see today. It stands at the heart of historic Winchester, once the seat of Anglo-Saxon and Norman royal power, on the site of an early Christian church. It's been a place of worship ever since.

See The Great Hall, "one of the finest surviving aisled halls of the 13th century", it contains the greatest symbol of medieval mythology, King Arthur's Round Table, and is all that now remains of Winchester Castle.
