Winchester Tourist Information Centre

Join us for an afternoon of celebration on Thursday 12 July from 3.30pm – 5.30pm as we official open Winchester Tourist Information Centre.

They’ll be plenty of activities and entertainment for all ages:

  • Free face painting
  • Food tasters
  • Medieval re-enactors
  • Character appearances from Wind in the Willows
  • Meet Wonky the Woodpecker
  • Free kids activities
  • Discounts available
  • See our new souvenirs in the Gift Shop

If you’re visiting Winchester make sure you pop in and see us in our new-look tourist information centre. Refurbishment works started on the existing centre earlier this year and the team were proud to open the doors in April.

Visitors to the new TIC can expect to experience a modernised layout that uses inspiring images of the city by local photographers to help give an immediate ‘sense of place’.

Take a look at our digital screens for inspiring footage of the city and district with some great scenic shots and a glimpse into our attractions and festivals.

Find what you are looking for at the touch of a button with our tablets – browse our new website for details about attractions, events, shops and find places to eat.

If you want to book tickets for an event at the Guildhall or a guided tour, step into our Visit Winchester Box Office area and our staff will do it all for you – you’ll also find information on all the events happening across the district too.

And of course, no trip would be complete without a souvenir to take home with you. The new TIC offers a gift shop with an improved choice of souvenirs, local produce and gifts – from mugs, key rings, postcards, magnets, children’s books and toys to local lavender gifts and a range of ales, gins and sparkling wine from our local producers.
