The route varies but will include a selection of the following:
The iconic statue of King Alfred, the historic High Street and West Gate, the Great Hall with its Round Table and connections to King Arthur, the site of Winchester Castle and King Charles II's Royal Palace, the River Itchen, the ruins of Wolvesey Castle, the exteriors of Wolvesey Castle, Jane Austen's house and Winchester Cathedral.
Tours take place all year, when permitted by any government restrictions, and daily between May and September. For details of all tour times please see the Tours Calendar.
