Winchester Visitor Information Centre (VIC) has now reopened to welcome visitors to the city.

The team has been working hard to ensure everything is ready for your visit. Pick up some local produce, your favourite Jane Austen novel or a souvenir of your visit to the district (no matter how local you live). Choose your next walk from an abundance of trail leaflets to inspire you, and the friendly team are ready to answer any queries you may have. They can also update you on which attractions you need to prebook before you visit and any other new processes or procedures in place.

Whether you are a regular to the VIC or if this is your first visit you can expect to see some changes introduced to the centre to reassure and look after all our visitors and staff. We have adopted Visit England’s industry standard mark ‘We’re good to go’ which means we are able to demonstrate adhering to Government and public health guidelines, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and have the necessary processes in place.

The layout of the centre now incorporates a one-way system to allow customers to view everything on offer and seek assistance from the team whilst maintaining a social distance. Please help yourself to hand sanitiser provided at the entrance and don’t forget to wear a face covering when you come in. Please only touch the items you plan to purchase. Access to the Guildhall though the VIC is currently unavailable.

If you would feel more comfortable talking to the team remotely then they are ready to answer any question on the phone – just call 01962 840 500 during opening hours or email tourism@winchester.gov.uk. The Visit Winchester website is full of ideas of things to do during your visit.

The VIC is currently open Monday to Saturday from 10am until 3pm.

We look forward to welcoming you back and hope you enjoy your visit.
