This is like a big old church but there are other buildings to see like the brothers' hall. Older than you think! I've been in summer when the tea shop is open and the cakes are homemade. Closes until Easter. Shop has some lovely green china.

Very informative and beautiful, the church is surprising and well cared for. Stunning windows and tranquil gardens even on a cold February morning a lovely place to spend your time.

A short walk along the water meadows will bring here along the River Itchen. Only really available from the outside, but worth the stroll

The hospital is a short walk from winchester along the river and through water meadows. Perfect for a cold winter day. The building was shut when we got there but very beautiful and peaceful.

An oasis of peace, especially in the summer. A twenty-minute walk along the river - with John Keats associations. Magnificent church, gardens and dining hall. Very good value refreshments available in the summer.

Great architecture, well-kept gardens and a beautiful setting. A perfect destination to walk to/from via the Water Meadows. St Faith's Church is lovely too and well worth viewing. Sadly, no refreshments were available in the winter. Some hot chai tea would have made a huge difference ;-) It's understandable that the almshouses themselves are private and out-of-bounds for visitors, but... More

Very old building with tons of history. Very interesting to walk and to see where the people who now live there stay. People were very pleasant and it is nice to take time to have a coffee in the cafe and chat to whoever is there. (Tea/coffee exceptionally cheap for a cafe). There is a bus directly from Winchester or... More

We had a walk across the water meadows to get here last Friday - it was a lovely sunny, crisp day. This was my favourite place I visited in Winchester as it was so tranquil. We sat in the Master's garden for a while and then went to the church. The whole area is beautifully looked after and I believe... More

Fascinating old monastic alms houses. The great hall was like stepping back into the middle ages and similarly with the kitchen. There is a beautiful stillness about the whole place which almost make me wish I was a monk (almost!)
