Living in the area

Centrally located in Hampshire, and just an hour from London, lies the popular cathedral city of Winchester with its bustling streets, historic buildings, museums and tranquil green spaces, just waiting to be explored.

Hampshire has an abundance of quality food and drink grown, produced and reared in the county, so it is not surprising that the city hosts the largest farmers’ market in England.

Exquisite gourmet restaurants, cosy tea rooms and fine, real ale pubs add to the gastronomic delights that are on offer. Full of culture, Winchester has a lively street theatre scene, thriving contemporary arts and fine architecture.

Birthplace of the modern game of cricket and resting place of author Jane Austen, the city hosts the ten day Winchester Festival every July where you can enjoy some of the greatest names in 21st century theatre, literature, visual arts and music.

For energetic days out, there are nature trails, sports activities, theme parks and wildlife parks and for those that prefer a quieter time, the New Forest and the Hampshire coastline are close by.

Conveniently located just off Junctions 9 and 10 of the M3, and only 13 miles from Southampton and 30 miles from Portsmouth, Winchester is nestled in picturesque countryside and surrounded by quaint rural market towns and villages, making it easy to see why the area is such a popular place in which to reside.

Winchester was first settled around 150BC when a hill fort was built on St Catherine’s Hill. Then in 70AD the Romans created the town of Venta Belgarum which remained a regional capital until they left in 410AD.

Since that time, great kings and bishops have left lasting reminders of their presence, one of the most notable being King Alfred the Great, who chose Winchester as the capital of England, the city remaining a Royal residence for centuries afterwards.

The construction of the present Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in Europe, began in 1079. It contains great examples of architecture spanning the 11th to the 16th century, and is the place of internment of numerous Bishops of Winchester, King Canute and Jane Austen.

During the Civil War the city fell to Parliamentarians and the castle was destroyed, however in Georgian times the city prospered with the growth of professions and small shops and trade coming to the region.

Then in 1840 during the Victorian era the railway arrived, bringing day tourists to the city and greater wealth.
