The Guildhall is a landmark building in the historic city centre of this ancient cathedral city and former capital of England.
Guildhall is close to the Cathedral, to shopping facilities and city amenities, including sightseeing spots such as King Alfred’s statue, Winchester College, Wolsey Castle, the City Museum, the City Mill and St. Giles’ Hill. Only a brief stroll up the High Street from the Guildhall, visitors will see the West Gate, one of the two remaining of the former five city gates. It has a viewing platform on top and a museum inside. Next to it is the site of the former royal castle, whose Great Hall has survived and features King Arthur’s Round Table. Winchester Cathedral is the burial site of many Saxon Kings and Bishops, as well as Jane Austen. Its library exhibits the Winchester Bible. As the former capital of Wessex and England, Winchester was the site of the Treasury as well as the Mint. Winchester maintains long-standing connections to the University of Southampton, whose School of Art is located here.
The Tourist Office is located inside the Guildhall, on the ground floor, and guided tours depart from there.
