Winchester College has been on the same site for nearly 800 years and has a collection of fantastic building from that period onwards. Well worth a guided tour which are usually twice daily.

We enjoyed Miss Chris guiding us through the school and the great stories she shared about the school's founders, traditions, and the amazing architecture. Visited with my boys who are 8 and 12.

There were only two of us for the 11:30 am tour on a Monday. School was in session, which made the experience even more personal and enjoyable. The architecture and the history of the college made for a truly interesting one hour plus.

We happened to be walking past the college on a Sunday morning and saw that the next tour was at 2.15 so we returned after a pub lunch. The tour guide Chris looked the part in her teachers gown and amused us with stories of the college in days gone by. The Dining hall was like something from Harry Potter... More

The guided tour was very informative, I now know where the expression 'having a square meal' comes from.

Happened to be passing just before a tour was due - and joined in. We were so glad we had done - the guide was so interesting, the tour was thorough and we were surprised at how much there was to see there.

Lovely guide who knew absolutely everything about the college. My first impressions were that this would be a tour for the elderly (no offense to the elderly). But to be honest it catered for everyone. My interests are architectural and this tour did not disappoint! Very reasonably priced also!
