What better way to spend the spooky season, than a walk in the ghostly footsteps of King Alfred the Great?
Led by a trained Actor/Comedian. Walsh Tours will meet you at the Buttercross, as darkness falls. Then see the site of the nation’s last public execution. After you will visit the eerie ruins of Hyde Abbey, cemetery, and the actual resting place of England’s first king.
Also see the haunted sites, and hear such grisly tales, of Winchester’s High Street and Cathedral.
A Georgian town of colour-washed houses, riverside walks and specialist shops.
Make a full day out with a ride on the Watercress Line and a walk around the picturesque Georgian town, with its delightful tea rooms and independent shops, or visit nearby National Trust property Hinton Ampner.
Alresford is also the hub of UK watercress industry, why not see if you can spot some growing?
