Ambassador Claudia on accessible places to visit in Winchester

Day out with Thomas
Day out with Thomas

4 July 2023

There’s so much to see in the city of Winchester. It’s got everything you need from independent shops, delicious places to eat, gorgeous walks and it’s full of history, and with a family that has a child with mobility issues there is a lot we can do.

Allow me to introduce you to my family.  I’m Claudia and am mum to three boys. Broden 16, Chase 11 and Trent, who is disabled and has mobility issues, is 9. As you can imagine planning a day out can cause anxiety about being able to get around easily without missing out on all the fun and takes a lot of planning and researching.

Which is why I think Winchester has something that caters for families like mine, and I want to share with you some of our favourite places to visit with places to park too, and don’t forget keeping those tummies full.


Here are my top 5 places to visit:

Besides the many places we like to visit there is a plethora of independent restaurants that are family friendly and accessible for us.  Some of our favourites are:


Besides all these amazing places to visit in the centre of town, Winchester also has some fantastic places to walk and have picnics. 

There is so much more to explore, the markets, the walks, the restaurants, independent shops and interesting and fun venues that keep families like mine entertained.  So many accessible places that make it a very inclusive city to visit.
