I love this place. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and clear your head, this place is recommended. Not large, but very beautiful with the river running through, it is a lovely walk with plenty of places to sit and ponder.

An hour worth spent walking along the paths and boards that connect to different parts of the reserve. Usual peaceful scene: swans nesting, ducks, dragonflies. Good for kids.

I really like the location of this reserve, being so close to town it is ideal for visitors. There are lots of positives to this reserve however a lot of negatives. The first part of the river you encounter is full of people dumping rubbish ie stove, fridge doors etc, not the most appealing. I really like that the river... More

A beautiful spot. So quiet, we saw only 1 other visitor. Parking nearby. Enchanting flocks of black/irridescent blue dragonflies, butterflies, coot nest. Takes about an hour to meander through the reed beds on the boardwalks, and complete the circuit of paths open to public. Free too!

Good little nature reserve visited Jan 2014. Ideal location, not far from the train station. Walking boots recommended, as it does get wet in wintertime. Plenty to do for just over an hour and half. Best to visit in spring / summertime when the reserve is at its best. Good start for a walk for a walk along the itchen... More

This lovely pice of nature is just a few minutes walk from the cathedral and is truly picturesque, a great place to lose yourself for an hour or two.

I love walking and this is one of my favourite places in winchester to walk especially after getting lunch at the sunday farmers market, you feel you are in the country watching the wildlife you see something different each time and you may come face to face with cows or swans nesting its a lovely place to go.

The old water meadows are surprisingly close to the centre of the town. They are rich in plants and wildlife. They are a lovely place for an afternoon stroll with the children. The boardwalks mean that the reserve is accessible for push chairs and wheel chairs. There are lots of information boards to tell you about the history of the... More

A nice walk for those seeking to get away from the hum drum of the city, the river Itchen flows through the moors so there is always the chance to see Kingfishers, Moorhens, a variety of ducks.

Lovely place to visit, no dogs allowed because of the wildlife. Beautiful walk and very well kept. If you start by the The Ship public house it will bring you out by the park lovely open spaces and a really good walk
