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 )-:

What a lovely place to come for a lovely afternoon walk. Can't believe that there is such a lovely peaceful quiet place so close to Winchester Centre.

This is a very relaxing place for a walk: birds, wild flowers and herbs, small trout in the river and the ocasional butterfly. We ended up walking a lot further than we had intended so were a bit tired by the time we got back to town but we did detour to the main road and found a nice pub... More

Lovely reserve but if going this September do not have exposed skin and use lots of insect repellant. My daughter and I were bitten by mosquitos yesterday and are now covered in bites, itching constantly! I was literally squashing the blighters off as we walked around.
