Weekend in Winchester | Выходной в Винчестере




I love UK and travelling, so last weekend we spent in a beautiful Winchester - ancient Capital of Wessex, the County Town of Hampshire, England. 

Winchester is the England’s ancient capital and former seat of King Alfred the Great.

It’s the burial place of many of England’s Kings, Queens, Saints, and famous people such as Jane Austen, Izaac Walton and Keats. 



Winchester is packed with historic buildings, monuments and museums - all within a short walking distance of each other and just waiting to be explored.

Why not spend a few days exploring this vibrant city, right?

RUS: Я люблю Великобританию и путешествовать, поэтому прошлые выходные мы провели в замечательном городе Винчестер (Winchester), в одном из самых древних городов Великобритании. В 9 в. король Альфред Великий сделал его своей столицей в королевстве Уэссекс.

В наше время город привлекает путешественников старинной историей - Большим залом, построенным еще в 1234 году, где, согласно легендам, находился Круглый стол короля Артура и где собирались все рыцари Круглого стола.
This is a list of "what to see" in Winchester:
