Winchester is a city and county town of Hampshire in southern England. The city lies at the western end of the South Downs National Park, along the course of the River Itchen. It is roughly 70 miles to the south west of London and 14 miles from Southampton. The city can trace its origins back to Roman times and a town called Venta Belgarum.
The city's major landmark is Winchester Cathedral which was built in 1079 and is one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. The cathedral has the longest nave and overall length of all Gothic cathedrals in Europe. In addition to its cathedral, Winchester is also home to the University of Winchester and to Winchester College, the oldest public school in the United Kingdom which was founded in 1382.
Other important historic buildings include the Guildhall dating from 1871 in the Gothic revival style, the Royal Hampshire County Hospital designed by William Butterfield and Winchester City Mill, one of the city's several water mills driven by the River Itchen that run through the city centre. The mill has recently been restored, and is again milling corn by water power. It is owned by the National Trust.
Located in the county of Oxfordshire, the city of Oxford has a rich history and is famous for being home of the prestigious Oxford University, which is made up of 38 colleges. However, there is more to Oxford than the university. You can take a stroll around the city and discover lovely tea rooms and cafes, museums, many of which are free to enter, or explore the famous Botanic Gardens. The Gardens were founded by the Earl of Danby, Henry Danvers as a physic garden in 1621, and is the oldest botanic garden in Britain. It houses a good collection of trees and plants, has tropical greenhouses, a Bog Garden and a Rock Garden. To get an overview of the city before you begin walking, try climbing up Carfax Tower in the city centre. Other views over the city are available from the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin in the High Street, and St. Michael Northgate, in Cornmarket. All of these vantage points have small admission charges. Walking tours of the city centre depart from the Oxford Visitor Information Centre (unless otherwise stated) and last between 1.5 and 2 hours. As well as introductory guided walking tours, specially themed tours are also available.
