Winchester welcomes a variety of groups and coach trips throughout the year – from school visits and scouting groups to history societies and flower arranging enthusiasts. Many businesses and corporate companies also choose to host their meeting, conference or away day in Winchester. And of course, where better to get married than the romantic city of Winchester?

We’ve made it easy for groups to find accommodation, places to eat and things to do – just click on the links below to start planning your group’s trip. Many of our attractions also have a group visits coordinator.

You can also search for group friendly accommodation, things to do and places to eat by selecting the ‘Group friendly’ filter on all our search pages.

Coach parking is available off Worthy Lane for just £7 for the whole day, and there are other suitable drop-off points around the city including King Alfred’s Statue on the Broadway – just opposite the Tourist Information Centre. If you’ve had a long journey and need a comfort break there are public toilets in Abbey Gardens next to the Guildhall.

Why not stop off at the Guildhall’s cafe – Eighteen71 for a cuppa?

Winchester Park & Ride offers parking and access into the city for just £3 a day for the entire car, up to seven people.
