You can make this visit the length you choose depending whether you sit and take in the peace. A tea room is open in the summer as well as shop selling souvenirs. Despite reading about the Warefare's dole of beer and bread we were not offered any! The turning to the hospital can be difficult to find - the Bell... More

I loved this place. I walked two different ways. On the way down I went by houses and on the way back I went by the creek where the cows are. This was my most favourite place in Winchester. After paying for my ticket I headed straight for the church and was lucky enough to hear the organ being played.... More

Follow the river from Winchester to St Cross. When you arrive, ask for the traveller's dole which is "bread and beer" given to anyone over the age of 18 who asks. You only get a tiny portion but it is fun.

This is the most ancient of Alms Houses. The River Itchen flows past its boundaries and Winchester is an easy stroll away along the water meadows. There are also two excellent pubs nearby .

A beautiful walk along the river to find this historical jewel. Set in pretty gardens and a little oasis all on its own!

A beautiful historic church on the outskirts of Winchester. Part of the Church of England. Stated to be 24 brothers in residence. Reached by car but possible to walk - about 45 minutes from city centre. We attended for a wedding for which the church was ideal.

I found this historical gem even more interesting than the Cathedral! Recommend taking a Tour with one of the Brothers/Guides who actually live there. There is a even a mediaeval kitchen where the Pilgrims were fed.

Beautiful location combine with Winchester walk, along side water meadows you get to see a totally different side of Winchester, well worth the walk!

Very interesting place to visit. Beautiful setting, you can even go on a beautiful walk along the river and could walk into Winchester. The number 1 bluestar bus stops virtually outside. The bell in. Pub is next door as eelll,

Did not know that this place existed but my friend found out about it and the Tourist Office have free maps of the Keates walk which goes around Winchester and then to St Cross. It is a very pleasant walk there by the river and once there you can visit the church, hospital (which isn't a hospital!), gardens and meadows,... More
