Winchester & Area Holiday Reviews

Winchester Cathedral, Winchester

Often described as ‘the perfect English city’, Winchester is an ideal destination for a relaxing getaway. Our hotels in Winchester provide the perfect base to explore this culturally rich medieval city and the beautiful countryside that surrounds it.

Based in the county of Hampshire, one hour south-west of London, Winchester was once the capital of England back in the Dark Ages. This historic city sits between South Downs and the New Forest, meaning our Winchester hotels provide visitors with the best qualities of a city break and a country retreat.

  • With a rich history, the incredibly impressive Winchester Cathedral is a must-visit; one of the biggest Gothic Cathedrals in Europe, the building is breath-taking inside and out
  • Winchester is also home to a number of other striking historic buildings including Wolvesey Castle – also known as the Old Bishop’s Palace – and Winchester Castle, home to King Arthur’s Round Table
  • Nearby Marwell Zoo is a great choice for those travelling with the kids – covering a staggering 140 acres, it’s a great place to roam for the day
  • The city is also popular with culture vultures and foodies alike; lively street theatre, impressive architecture and a buzzing contemporary arts scene attract a diverse array of visitors all year round.
Browse our range of Winchester hotels in the list below to find the perfect place to stay during your trip to this fabulous city.

Winchester and the New Forest

Stay Date: 28/08/07, a customer who stayed at 4* Mercure Winchester Wessex Hotel in Winchester wrote this review.

Winchester is a fascinating ancient city with good shops and a lovely walk beside the River Itchen - make sure to visit the Cathedral (there is an entrance charge unless you attend a service - See More  Read more information Choral Evensong at 5.30p.m. on weekdays is wonderful!). Also include a visit to Wolvesy Castle and Winchester College - passing the house where Jane Austen died. It is worth visiting the College gift shop- Cornflowers? - and call in for a drink at the Wykeham Arms. There are plenty of good places to eat so you'll never be stuck for a delicious meal! The New Forest is a short drive away and certainlyworth the effort - beautiful countryside and the New Forest ponies to look out for. Whilst in the New Forest visit Beaulieu with the Motor Museum - The Montagu Arms does good food and has beautifulgardens behind where you can enjoy a drink or two! Lymington is a busy little town on the coast and the starting point for many mini cruises - worth a visit. If you enjoy retail therapy there areexcellent superstores (Sainsburys and Marks and Spencer) at Hedge End just off the motorway. Finally Mottisfont Abbey is a must if you like visiting stately homes and beautiful gardens - home to a hugecollection of old English roses - at their best in June but still beautiful at the end of August. Never seen so many large trout swimming lazily in beautiful clear water - the River Test runs through andnear Mottisfont and is a delight to see. Plenty to see and do in the area whatever your tastes - be sure to visit!!   Collapse  Hide
