Living in Winchester
From castles, cathedrals and stately homes, to museums, theatres, galleries and arts festivals, Winchester has it all. Perhaps due to its long and elite history as home to kings and queens, today’s Winchester has more than its fair share of cultural highlights. The city boasts Hampshire’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, The Black Rat, which serves up delicious local produce in imaginative dishes. There is a wealth of great food and drink besides, in the city’s ancient and historic pubs, as well as newer establishments that offer unique dining experiences.
With a lively street theatre scene, excellent shopping, and a serious dose of history as befits the first capital city of England, Winchester combines the best of modern city living with the beauty and freshness of the Hampshire countryside.
And when you come home, the sociable atmosphere of Winchester Holts gives you all the pleasures of community, and a place to share your great experiences.
