CITY OF WINCHESTER
24th September 2021
Today we visit Winchester, the unspoilt cathedral city on the edge of the South Downs, once England’s ancient capital and former seat of King Alfred the Great. Winchester combines the best of city life with the freshness of the surrounding countryside. Winchester’s bustling shopping streets sit side by side with ancient alleyways and pedestrianised walkways all centred around its imposing cathedral that has the longest nave of all the Gothic cathedrals in Europe and is the final resting place of Jane Austen. We shall have at least four hours in this historic city arriving home by approximately 7.30pm.
