A brief history of royal Winchester

Winchester has been a focus for royal activity and patronage since the Early Middle Ages when it was the effective capital of Wessex under the Saxon kings. A succession of royal residences were constructed here and the cathedral has been a key location for royal ceremonial and important events such as weddings, coronations and royal tombs. This trail will guide you around Winchester, making connections between the particular places in the city which have featured in royal visits and events from the Saxon era to the present day.
