Is moving to Wickham wonderful?
If you fancy stepping away for the hustle and bustle of the city, you could do a lot worse than look at the medieval village of Wickham. It was first mentioned in the Royal Charter of 826 and was significant enough to feature in the Domesday Book. It sits in the picturesque Meon Valley, it’s a stones throw from Winchester and it has some beautiful, well-appointed homes.
The M3 and M27 run close by; there are trains from Winchester, which will get you to London Waterloo in 70 minutes or Southampton in 20 minutes.
Wickham CofE primary school is excellent and Boundary Oak School is a leading independent school set in 23 acres of countryside and situated on the Wickham Road.
There are some very fine restaurants and wine bars in Wickham. Wickham Wine Bar and Restaurant is always good, its position is perfectly situated on the lovely medieval square. It serves a delicious roast breast of duck with blackberry cream sauce. The wine list is good and offers a very drinkable Trapiche Malbec to compliment the duck. Lilly’s Tea and Coffee House, also on the square, is a great teahouse with superbly cooked food, it does a wicked eggs benedict!
