The museum must rank as one of the best military museums in the UK and is well worth spending a couple of hours there. The quality of the miniature battle scenes, dotted around the exhibits, are top rate as... More

I travelled to Winchester with my father who is 92 for a visit to the museum as he is a big supporter of the gurkha welfare trust.

Have been twice, once with Dad... More

There are so many places to see and visit... More

Brilliant food and a museum to boot! Unusual sandwhiches on a different planet from Subway, home made soup and baked potatoes winners.
