Explore our city’s rich heritage in more depth.

Winchester is alive with natural, historic and architectural treasures. Each year the guides offer a programme of walking tours which allow them to share their special interests and enthusiasms. Let us show you some of the private buildings and hidden places of Winchester. Then there are our traditional seasonal delights as the year draws to a close. Learn about different historical periods, explore a disused railway tunnel, have some fun at Halloween or enjoy the special atmosphere of Winchester at Christmas.
