If you would like to book a private or group tour, guides can be booked for any number of people, catering for special interests and foreign languages. Ready-made tours include Royal Scandals, Literary Winchester, Hidden Places, and “Jane Austen's Winchester”, but the guides will always try to meet your own requirements given adequate notice. Prices start from £90 for a standard 90 minute tour.
Winchester is packed with historical and architectural treasures. Why not make the most of your visit by extending your tour to a half- or full-day with a tailored itinerary and built-in refreshment stops?

"Thank you very much for guiding us so expertly around Winchester. You managed to show us many lovely highlights of the City and the tour of the Cathedral proved a real hit – it was wonderful to explore it in the atmospheric evening light. I have received a number of emails from our group saying how much they enjoyed their visit. We were all greatly impressed not only by your knowledge of the history of Winchester, but also your ability to present it to us in such an accessible and interesting fashion."
"Just a note to thank you for a really splendid tour last Saturday. You could not have looked after us better. We cannot tell you how impressed we have been with all aspects of the Winchester guide service."
