Nestling at the edge of the South Downs National Park is the city of Winchester in Hampshire. The cathedral city lies on the banks of the River Itchen and is a short distance along the south coast of England from Southampton. The city has many historic landmarks including Wolvesey Castle and the Great Hall of Winchester Castle. The former was the Norman's Bishop's palace and dates from 1110. Most of the original castle is now a ruin although the chapel is now incorporated into the new palace that was constructed in the 1680's. Only one wing of the second palace still remains. The Great Hall was built in the 12th century and rebuilt at some point in the 13th century. It remains in this form today. The Hall is famous for King Arthur's Round Table which has hung in the hall from around 1463. The names of the legendary Knights of the Round Table are written around the edge of the table.
Travelling to Winchester by rail is easy with many frequent direct services from London, Weymouth, Portsmouth and Southampton and from towns and cities around the United Kingdom.
