  • Beautiful cathedral. I went there on Christmas day. The streets are filled with energy and joy. I was glad I experienced that vibe. Then I got into the building. It has lots of interesting art and wall designs that look amazing. Big space both vertically and horizontally. I like to go there again.

  • The cathedral is located among other beautiful, historic buildings in a quiet part of the city and is well worth visiting. My only gripe would be the entry/annual pass fee. I suppose visitors to the city would expect it but I find it off-putting; I usually find I've mislaid my slip of paper if I have a few minutes to drop in and enjoy the surroundings so I don't bother. I visit Salisbury far less often but can enjoy the cathedral without paying. I make a voluntary donation every time I go to Salisbury so I suspect that cathedral earns much more from me than Winchester without even trying.

  • Absolutely loved it here. Lots of history going on in here. You get a free guided tour with your admission and I'd highly recommend taking it. Your ticket is also valid for 12 months so you can come back during that time if you want to. Don't miss Jane Austen's grave.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the cathedral. It has an important place in English history. The guided tour was the icing on the cake, our guide demonstrated a detailed knowledge of the cathedral and it's history, and we were very impressed with her style and enthusiasm. We happened to visit during choral practice for a concert later that day, and were privileged to enjoy some quality music, enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of the building.

  • Went to Xmas market which was worth the trip from london. Nothing massively different or new from any other Xmas market but a decent size in nice setting. Very busy on the Saturday. Not really dog friendly and pushing a pram will be a chore. Queue to get in as you have to go in via a narrow passage. Thought I saw something saying 100 small shops but didn't feel like that many. 60 to 75 I would have thought. Usual food stuff which is pricey. 4 quid for mulled wine and 5.50 for bratwurst. The cathedral was a good size and you can do tours I think and they have events too. Don't expect to turn up and skate on a weekend; sold out from what I could see so book. Town is nice and there is obviously a bit of cash around. Lots of restaurants and pubs. Various bands playing Xmas songs, carol singers and buskers. 10 to 15 min walk from station. A decent way to spend a dry weather day.
