Owner description: The Great Hall is one of the finest surviving medieval aisled halls of the 13th century and is all that remains of Winchester Castle. The Great Hall is open daily to the public offering a unique historical experience and the chance to see the greatest symbol of medieval mythology: King Arthur's Round Table. Visitors can also see Queen Eleanor's garden, a recreation of an enclosed medieval garden, providing an injection of nature. Our knowledgeable custodians offer guided tours to unlock the historical journey of the Great Hall and Winchester castle at 11:00 and 15:00. Entry charges apply, please visit our website for further details.

5 stars because if you are in any way interested in King Arthur seeing the Round Table (even if it is not really King Arthur's) is a must.
If you are not into King Arthur there are still interesting things to see and it takes only a few minutes time so it is worth the visit.

Lots of history and lots to look at. A real sense of royal history. Again the gift shop is a bit overpriced, only a donation to enter the big hall. Well worth going to.

Not sure I would have been happy to pay to get in. However, I really liked the hall. Nice building. Worth a visit but wouldn't really go out of my way. Spent about 20 mins the hall. The castle ruins were interesting.

This was an interesting site to visit, especially after having visited Tintagel Castle earlier in the week. Some of the architecture was beautiful.

We did enjoy seeing the Great Hall and King Arthur's round table. a genealogy chart covers the back wall (which was impressive). It will only take a few minutes, but if you enjoy seeing old castles then this is worthy of the donation they ask. We enjoyed it.
