The Winchester walk - a tour of King Alfred's city

Further Information

A great way to explore the main sights and attractions at your own pace, The Winchester walk is divided into 3 loops averaging a mile in length, so you can do as little or as much as time will allow or your feet will take. From his famous statue in the Broadway to his last-known resting place beneath Hyde Abbey Garden, follow in the footsteps of the king they called 'The Great One'. 

Sunset walk

This popular self-guided walk takes you off the beaten track through historic eastern Winchester and up St Giles Hill, a tranquil spot with superb views across the city - an idyllic setting for a picnic or a twilight stroll.

Keats' walk

Further Information

John Keats wrote his ode 'To Autumn' during his stay in Winchester in September 1819. Follow Keats' daily walk, which provided inspiration for his poetry, and stroll through the Cathedral Close and water meadows to the medieval almshouse of St Cross.

Visitor trail by wheelchair
