I love the history and imagining life in times gone by - this was easy to find from the centre of town, you can spend 15 minutes or so here and get an idea as to how big the castlke was.

if you have a vivid imagination, this is the place for you, as there is very little left to see. if you are pressed for time, this is one you could skip

In a lovely location near Winchester College, on the way towards the water meadows, this lovely ruin is free to get in, and with really interesting information boards.
I often come here to eat an ice cream or read my book in peace in the sun, sitting on a wall and watching happy kids running about, strambling all over the stonework.
A real asset to Winchester and a must-see for any visitor as part of the walk around the back of the walls, and the Itchen.

Worth a visit if you like history and free entry. There's not too much left but the ruins are atmospheric and you can read about the history at the various information boards dotted about.

The history. I took a friend who was visiting from America and he was very impressed by the events which had happened there and the age of the place.
