Winchester Cathedral

1 The Close Winchester SO23 9LS

Winchester’s stout cathedral has served as a place of worship for almost a thousand years. Begun in 1079, it was tweaked, added to and enhanced over three centuries, and is now Europe’s longest medieval cathedral. Though immediately impressive in size, its real attraction is the bounty of treasures within, including the tombs of King Canute and Jane Austen, the stunning illuminated Winchester Bible and Anthony Gormley’s ‘Sound II’ statue, in the crypt below. Evensong (Mon–Sat 5.30pm, Sun 3.30pm), sung by the cathedral choir, is always memorable.
