Whether it’s spending time together uncovering the city’s romantic legends, strolling hand in hand along the sunset walk, or laying down a private picnic on an iron age hill fort, Winchester is packed with romantic things to do.

Why not escape to a luxurious country house or stylish boutique hotel? Enjoy fine dining in a candle-lit restaurant with a roaring log fire followed by a romantic sunset stroll or a riverside walk.

The city of Winchester has witnessed many romantic scenes including the marriage in Winchester Cathedral of Queen Mary Tudor to King Philip II of Spain.

Follow in the footsteps of the English Romantic poet John Keats and admire the same views that inspired his sensuous ode ‘To Autumn’.
