Hospital of St Cross

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

Visited this place because I had seen reviews on this site. There does not seem to be any reference to it in any other local information I have seen. I walked from the Cathedral along the river and water meadow walk (about 20min) It is mostly a roughish track but very pleasant and I did see people with push chairs... More

We were here for a wedding which was a delight and returned the next day to have our wayfarers dole before beginning to walk St. Swithun's Way. What fun to learn more about an ancient venerable institution.

Winchester is blessed with some lovely walks and the walk out to St. Cross, across the fields is one of them. If its warm and you want to 'dunk your dog' there's a few places suitable - and then you end up at St. Cross itself, which is a beautiful and spiritual place to spend a while (whilst throwing the...

An oasis of peace - and a great place to stop for tea and cake in summer! Do not miss the gardens and make sure to ask the porter for the 'wayfarer's dole'. This is a perfect place to absorb some history, but also to relax in unspoilt tranquility.

Must do's. Go to Matins with the brothers at 10am. have morning tea and taste Brother Matthews cakes, stroll in the enclosed garden, walk the water meadows path and marvel that it is all still here after all this time. The garden, looked after by one of the community is a gorgeous example of a walled garden complete with climbing... More

Such a beautiful old place. It feels as though you are going back in time. A perfect place to stroll along the river to on a warm day. And, of course, it was featured in the BBC production of Wolf Hall!
