This is a lovely little haven from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, it's a mile round loop (with shorter path routes for those who don't wish to walk so far) and provides many opportunities to spot rare as well as common wildlife. Water voles and otters have a particularly strong presence here, as well as many marsh... More

This was my first real exposure to the famous English Countryside and it was delightful. Going for a hike along the trail was nice and it was such a pretty day for a walk. We saw swans and people walking their dogs. I felt like I was in a Jane Austen book, walking with Elizabeth...

We like Winchester. Our favourite walk is along the Itchen Navigation and up St Catherines Hill but if we are not feeling so energetic and we want a walk and do some shopping as well, then this is a good alternative because it does not feel close to the city centre but is a tranquil place to have a short...

This small nature reserve is free to enter but is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Great for sitting in peace and eating your lunch. if you are lucky you may see an otter or a water-vole.

if you don't have a car then this is fine. A mostly board walk track leads you around the water meadows. Buggy and wheelchair friendly from the police station side only. Signs explain various things you may see on the way and sometimes there are cattle at the far end. Access can be gained from the rugby pitches as well.... More

Winnall Moors is a picturesque location in Winchester. It is perfect for a Sunday afternoon stroll but I also enjoy jogging through it. The platform through the reeds makes a great trip trap sound as you run.

This is an oasis of calm, but you can quickly walk in from the City. Paths make it accessible to all and the history of these local water meadows is fascinating. If you're lucky you'll see kingfishers.

Winnall Moors Nature reserve can be accessed from the bridge over the river in riverside park. It is a quiet space with riverside and reed bed walks where you can see a wide variety of birds and animals. The boards usually tell you what has been spotted that week. It is rarely busy and you get the feel of being... More

This nature preserve is not just a park, it's a quick visit to the countryside. Sometimes you get stuck pounding the pavement for too many days in a row when on vacation. It's great to be able to see some more natural scenery every once in a while.

Clean walkways, superb interpretive boards, wildlife in profusion. Didn't like having to step aside for the lunchtime joggers on the footpaths )-:
