Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
With its medieval architecture, magnificent cathedral and the countryside of the South Downs within easy reach, Winchester is a great destination for a mini break. The Winchester Royal Hotel is in the centre of town and is the only hotel in the city that has a walled garden -- nicknamed the "secret garden" by locals.
Originally a private house, the property then became a bishop's residence and later a convent, and has been a hotel for the past 150 years.
The Garden Restaurant, which overlooks the walled garden and terrace, serves modern European dishes.
From the hotel, The Great Hall, an atmospheric 13th-century hall featuring a medieval round table linked to King Arthur, is less than 10 minutes' walk away.
Winchester Science Centre & Planetarium is a 15-minute drive away.
