Winchester is quite possibly one of the most historic cathedral cities in England. From its pre-history as an Iron Age settlement to the large Roman town of Venta Belgarum; from the Anglo-Saxon capital of the Kingdom of Wessex to the centre of medieval power following the Norman invasion of England, Winchester has been left with deep roots of its historical past.
This means that the city is a history lovers delight. While there is little to see of the prehistoric and Roman periods, there is still much to be savoured of its medieval and Tudor past. In this guide, we travel to Winchester in Hampshire and highlight some fabulous historical places to visit!
