Get your taste of traditional England in Winchester – a city overflowing with pretty cobbled streets, time-stamped buildings and quaint tea rooms. A 25-minute scenic drive will land you in this ancient capital, where you’ll find a charming mix of old and new. You can’t miss the cathedral – it’s one of the largest in Europe, and dates back to the 7th century. Plenty of famous names – like Jane Austen – are buried here. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for the statue of King Alfred the Great at the top of the town. Winchester’s a first-rate destination for shoppers, too – one-off vintage shops rub shoulders with loads of big-name stores.
