A cathedral city sat on the western outskirts of the South Downs National Park, Winchester is an idyllic medieval town which combines cosmopolitan living with countryside ideals.
In March 2016, Winchester was named as the best place to live in Britain by the Sunday Times Best Places To Live guide which called the town a historic and cultured ‘foodie city’, with Michelin star restaurants, cosy pubs and the largest farmer’s market in the UK. Throw in the world class schools, friendly locals and the low crime rates and it is not hard to see why so many are flocking to Winchester.
The town has a rich and celebrated heritage as the ancient capital of Wessex and a country town of Hampshire.
Winchester is the burial place of many of England’s Kings, Queens and Saints and is home to the iconic Winchester Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral of its kind in Europe and Winchester College, one of the oldest public schools in the country.
Winchester’s location also makes it a good choice for commuting into the bigger cities for work, with Southampton, the nearest city in Hampshire, 20 minutes away by train and the capital just over an hour away, with services running 4 times an hour to London Waterloo.
Winchester may be small and compact but it has no shortage of attractions to appeal to all ages and persuasions.
Take a stroll along Winchester’s cobbled street and explore the town’s ancient past, from guided tours looking at the Cathedral’s colour past and some of the historic people that have shaped the city, including the famous author, Jane Austen. The city is also home to two theatres and enjoys an active arts scene.
For a family day out, you cannot beat Marwell Zoo, home to over 135 species of animals across 140 acres.
The Zoo has many popular exhibits showcasing animals from all around the world, including the African rainforest and Australian Bush.
Once done exploring make sure to replenish at one of Winchester’s ‘foodie’ havens. Winchester Farmers’ Market takes place on the second and final Sunday of each month and is not to miss.
Located in the heart of the city you can find anything from buffalo burgers and hog roasts to veal, cheese and mulled wine.

Winchester is one of the most diverse and prosperous urban centres in Hampshire. This is reflected in its employees’ wages which are generally higher than those of neighbouring towns and cities.
The introduction of the ‘Winchester District Economic Strategy 2010-2020’ is working towards making Winchester a better place to live and work. As well as a popular mentoring scheme to boost employment rates and improve the city’s skills pool, the council is also providing support for young workers, and offering lifelong development for those who are already employed.
Many people find employment in the public sector (education and healthcare), such as tourism vacancies, retail jobs, distribution, hospitality, finance jobs, and business services. Some of the main employers in the city are IBM, Zurich Insurance and Winchester City Council.
Winchester has a reputation for providing excellent schools for all ages and is one of the main reasons why people relocate to the city.
Practically all its primary and secondary schools have been rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted. Many parents add their names to admission waiting lists long before their children start school. St Peter’s Catholic school, St Faiths CofE and Kings secondary school are among the best performing and most popular schools in the area.
Winchester is perhaps most famously regarded as being well serviced by the private sector with many of the best public schools in the country found within the city’s reach.
There is the co-educational Prince’s Mead School just to the north, The Pilgrims’ School boys’ prep, St Swithun’s for girls and of course, the oldest public school in the form of Winchester College.
