A pleasant area to walk and relax while in the lovely city of Winchester. The paths are flat and even so makes for easy walking.

You would never believe that a City, even one as nice as Winchester, could have such a beutiful and wild place right in the middle of it. Just a few minutes walk from the statue of King Alfred, and you are in the middle of a moorland with a river running through it. Swans, swallows, Otters and Trout, the reserve... More

Very conveniently situated from the Premier Inn. This is a peaceful and lovely area. Look out for the quotes on the reed bed board walk - they add to the experience. Would love to return when the weather is more friendly but we nevertheless enjoyed the walk.

This is a beautiful quiet haven for wild life and people, dogs not allowed as this disturbs the natural inhabitants. Shame about the Joggers, there are plenty of places in winchester such as the park which is more appropiate for this activity.

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
