Apart from Winchester Cathedral, this is my favourite place to visit in the whole of the city. Maybe it's not that big a secret- there are signs- but it is away from the tourist centre. You can get to it by car off St Cross Road but the best approach is by walking along the River Itchen past the water... More

St Cross is always beautiful but during the summer months the garden comes into its own and is very peaceful. if it is a lovely day you could always take a picnic. there is the opportunity to have coffee/tea and cake in the Hundred Men's Hall. Many tourist do not make it to St Cross and they miss out a... More

This is a beautiful place to visit. About a mile from the centre of Winchester but can be reached by walking along the footpath from the Mill and continuing past Winchester College and continuing through the Water Meadows. A trip to enjoy. The Wayfarers 'Dole' can be taken at St Cross Hospital or a quick visit to the local hostelries.... More

a bit of a walk from the city centre but worth a visit. Cafe and toilets on site. The church is beautiful as are the gardens. Relaxing spot

Although I have promised myself many times that I would visit The Hospital of St. Cross, sadly I have only ever managed to go there to attend funerals. Today was very different when I attended their Fete and had ample time to spend in the chapel and garden as well as take in the entertainment and bag a few bargains... More

Wonderful walk across water meadows to a beautiful site - so peaceful. The Master's garden wonderful. And can really recommend the tea room - fantastic cakes and friendly service.

Art and architecture to rival to Hotel de Dieu in Beaune in Burgundy. Lovely concert and superb stonemason work and vaulted ceilings.

We walked along the river from Winchester past the college and what a wonderful walk it was! We looked at the outside of the hospital but didn't go in. Very peaceful place but quite small and of course you can't go into the brothers residences.

You can ask for the daily dole, a portion of bread and ale, handed out to travellers for over 150 years, whilst the lady in the shop tells you the history of the alms houses, eat in the grounds from the delightful cafe, or walk along the adjacent river and water meadows

Lovely place to visit, very quiet and the gardens are lovely. The cafe was a pleasant place to sit in the sun with a cup of tea and a piece of cake made by one of the Brothers.
