Looking for things to do in Winchester?
From the iconic King Alfred Statue to the 15th century Buttercross monument, the cobbled streets of the ex-capital of England is a jewel in Hampshire’s crown. Who doesn’t like a romantic, historic, pretty city to explore?
Much like it’s pretty stone carved counterparts Winchester offers all the charm of Oxford, Bath and Cambridge but with the benefit of being much smaller.
Don’t get me wrong, you’ll need your comfy walking shoes on but you’ll squeeze a fantastic amount of the city in just one day or weekend.
It’s also home to a thriving independent food and coffee scene too. Rather than trying to fit it all in one giant post, I’ll be following this up with a post all about the great restaurants and cafes in Winchester too, so keep an eye out for this.
Here’s your guide to fun, historic and cultural things to do in the city, all written from personal experience, to help you plan your next trip.
