Winchester Certificated Locations

The city of Winchester is the county town of Hampshire and lies on the edge of the South Downs National Park. When you visit, you may be struck by the elegance and grandeur of the place, which is probably something to do with it being the capital of England during the time of Alfred the Great.

Among its main highlights is Winchester Cathedral, which has the longest nave in Europe, while Wolvesey Castle and Winchester City Mill are also well worth a look.

Foodies will be in their element in Winchester, as it boasts the largest farmers' market in the UK and a dizzying choice of eateries, whether you want a quick bite or a lavish evening meal.

There are also plenty of shops - both independent and big-brand -and many are housed down quaint medieval and Tudor streets.

Museum-wise, don't miss the Gurkha Museum, Winchester Military Museums and Westgate Museum, the latter of which lies in the old debtors' prison.

Finally, ensure you stay in Winchester in the evenings as there's so much to do. You can catch a play, ballet or opera, or simply soak up the atmosphere in one of the many pubs or wine bars.
