Follow the daily route Keats took during his stay in Winchester

Enjoy a self-guided walk in the poet's footsteps from the city to St Cross, passing through the landscape which inspired his famous ode 'To Autumn'.

The round trip is approximately two miles. Pavements, paths and grass lie underfoot and stout shoes are advisable after wet weather.

Follow the links for more detailed information on the places of interest you will pass along the way. The numbers in brackets correspond with the Keats' Walk route map, which you should download before you set off.

Refreshments are available en route at the Cathedral Cafe and at the Hospital of St Cross itself during the summer months. The Bell Inn in St Cross Road is the closest pub to St Cross Hospital. Alternatively, there are many picnic spots along the way.

If you're organising a group outing along Keats' Walk, why not enlist the services of one of our qualified tourist guides to help you discover the sights and learn a few stories along the way?
