Click for Winchester UK WeatherWinchester is a city in southern England, and the administrative capital of the county of Hampshire.
It is the seat of the City of Winchester local government district which covers a much larger area. Winchester was formerly the capital of England, during the 10th and early 11th centuries.

Important historic buildings include Winchester Cathedral, built in the 12th century; the Great Hall, the only surviving portion of the old Royal Palace; and Winchester College, a public school founded in 1382.

William of Wykeham (1320-1404) played an important role in the history of the town; as Bishop of Winchester he was responsible for much of the current structure of the cathedral and also founded Winchester College.

During the middle ages, the city was an important centre of the wool trade, before going into a slow decline. St. Swithun was Bishop of Winchester in the mid ninth century.
The famous novelist Jane Austen died in Winchester on 18 July 1817 and is buried in the cathedral.
The ancient Pilgrim's Way begins at Winchester, and runs to Canterbury.

As well as the public school, Winchester College, Winchester is home to the largest state sixth form college in the country, Peter Symonds College. University College Winchester (formerly King Alfred's College) is situated within the city, as is the Winchester School of Art, part of the University of Southampton.

Since 1974 Winchester has hosted the annual Hat Fair, a celebration of street theatre that includes performances, workshops, and gatherings at several venues around the city. MORE...
