What we will do

  • If one place lies at the centre of English history and embodies the romantic vision of an English heartland, it is Winchester. Leave the port for a coach drive to this beautiful city; here, among other monuments, we will visit the Cathedral, which dates back to the VII century when a Christian church was first built on this site. Since then it has played a fundamental part in the life of this ancient city and a key role in English history. Our tour will enable you to enjoy a unique experience of sacred architecture and art as well as providing an introduction to this important symbol of England. We will admire the choir stalls with their magnificent gabled canopies, elaborately carved flowers and plants, owls and monkeys, dragons and knights. Next we will have the opportunity to explore the centre of this ancient and royal city which still resounds to the echoes of its fabled past. 
  • Enjoy an independent visit to Winchester Castle and its XIII century Great Hall. The Hall is home to one of the best-known symbols of medieval mythology, King Arthur’s Round Table, which hangs in the Great Hall of King Henry VIII.
