Winchester TownAugust 24 in the United Kingdom
Decided to continue the “Very Big Churches Tour of England” so headed to Winchester.
Decided to use their Park and Ride as we’d had a look at some of their streets.
Terrific scheme, carparks on periphery, bus to middle of town every 7 minutes and all for £3 for 6 people.
This assumes that you have a local debit card or coins that you have not given away to the barmaif the evening before.
Ah, the Interweb. Eventually it was all doen online and the next time we go it wont take longer than the bus ride.
Winchester is one of the nicest towns we’ve seen. Great Hight Street with fantastic array of old and ancient buildings, buskers, market going on.

Enormous Guild Hall, couple of Alms Houses, an old type Hospital that still gives out traveller benefits, a working watermill at the bottom end of town and the Cathedral in the back. Nothing not to like.
Bern has voted it “BEST TOWN YET” in capitals.Read more
