The Best Places to Stay in the UK


The size of Winchester's compact city centre makes it a desirable place to do a little shopping and, once past the streams of traffic on the central 'city road', you can relax in smaller lanes peppered with interesting shops. The hub of the shopping is in pedestrianised streets near to the cathedral and around the market square which plays host to an award winning farmers market, the largest in the country. This is a great place to buy local produce and a must-see amongst your browsing of the nearby retailers. Winchester boasts a diverse range of independent shops, with arts, crafts and antiques to be found, as well as trendy home wares in the grand Georgian setting of The Hambledon department store.
