We visited Winchester for the first time and were amazed to learn it was the original capital city of England. Everyone should visit this city at least once; it's dripping in antiquity and history. The Wykeham Arms is situated adjacent to the city wall and is the ideal place to visit the city by foot. We just left our car in their car park and forgot about it.the reception was extremely friendly and delivered with a smile. We did a deal on their suite which is situated just opposite the inn on the other side of a very small road. Slightly unusual route to the suite via another business bur we found a well appointed living area with facilities on the ground floor and small bedroom on a mezzanine. The deal we struck made it very good value for money; the location may make their standard tariff palatable. We didn't eat their as there is a plethora of excellent restaurants in Winchester but we did have a drink in the bar which was a great experience. Decor is interesting with lots of school desks and church memorabilia. We'd stay there again for sure.
