Hotels in Winchester
Set in an ancient city on the western border of the South Downs, Winchester hotels are an ideal destination if you're looking for historical buildings, chic boutique shops and beautiful natural landscapes.
Winchester is a cathedral city with a long heritage, reaching as far back as prehistoric times and taking in Gaulish tribes, Romans and Anglo-Saxons along the way. The most prominent historical building is Winchester Cathedral, which dominates the heart of the city. The cathedral is one of the largest in the country and boasts the greatest overall length of any Gothic cathedral in Europe. Work on the cathedral began in 1079 and was built upon over the ensuing centuries until the 16th century. The cathedral is the burial site of many famous figures, including several Anglo-Saxon monarchs and the author Jane Austen, and is the starting point on the ancient Pilgrims' Way that ends in Canterbury Cathedral.
Beside the cathedral are the ruins of Wolvesey Castle, erected by the Bishop of Winchester Henry of Blois between 1130 and 1140 and destroyed by roundheads during the English Civil War in 1646. Winchester Castle is another important medieval structure in the city, originally founded in 1067. Only the Great Hall survives to this day, which was built in the 13th century by King Henry III. If you visit the castle, make sure you look out for the Winchester Round SEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION, a trophy made for King Henry VIII that echoes the Arthurian legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round SEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION.
Based in picturesque surroundings beside the River Itchen is The Hospital of St Cross, a medieval almshouse that dates from between 1133 and 1136 and is the oldest chariSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION institution in the United Kingdom. It is also the largest medieval almshouse in Britain, and there is plenty to explore during your visit including a 13th century church and the 14th-century Brethren's Hall.
