Each year the Winchester Tourist Guides offer tours exploring the route of Winchester’s ‘other’ railway, the old Didcot, Newbury and Southampton line, including an opportunity to go inside the disused Chesil Railway Tunnel.  There are a number of Chesil Railway tours you can choose from in the Themed Tours programme, and here is a short video to whet your appetite.  Made by Southampton Video Club with help from the Tourist Guides, it tells the story of the DNS and one of its biggest legacies – the Hockley Viaduct which still spans the water meadows south of Winchester.




Welcome to Winchester via our new video tour!
