The local area
Winchester’s local area has long been settled by humans, with its history stretching back to three Iron Age hill forts. The settlement became a hugely important town in Roman Britain under the name Venta Belgarum, and was reinforced with stone walls around its perimeter at the start of the third century. As well as plenty of modern amenities, Winchester still offers plenty of historical landmarks to visit, including the 15th century City Cross and Winchester Cathedral, which is one of the largest in Europe.
The city has a great location within southern England, which is one of the things that makes it so popular to live in. There are trains which take less than an hour to get to London Waterloo station, making Winchester an option for commuters to the capital. Rail services to Southampton meanwhile take just 20 minutes. The M3 motorway passes by the east of Winchester, connecting the city to Basingstoke, Farnborough and London to the northeast, and Southampton and its airport in the south.
There’s a great range of highly rated schools in the area to take into account if you have children, with primary options including St Faith’s CofE, St Peter’s Catholic Primary and Weeke Primary. The Westgate School, Kings’ School and Henry Beaufort School are all state comprehensive secondary schools, while Winchester College and St Swithun’s are independent senior schools. For higher education, the city offers the University of Winchester.
