Beautiful town of Winchester
This spring before going to London we decided to visit our friends in Winchester which is about 300 km away from London. I've been there once, a year ago and I absolutely loved it but this time I wanted to take a closer look..
So here we are in a beautiful town of Winchester. A view from our window.
Our neighbor cat.
The town is really beautiful. You can feel the British soul. Classic red brick walls, wooden and stone buildings. Small clean streets. Real English people with almost no tourists at all.
The High Cross. Also known as the City of Butter Cross. Dated as early 15th Century the monument was restored by G. G. Scott in 1865.
Every house has it's own unique detail.
An interesting sign. We figured it means that grandmas aren't allowed to run faster than 20 m/h :)
These signs looks terrific.
Here is an interesting idea.
A view of Winchester Cathedral - the longest cathedral in Europe, was originally built in 1079.
Still the same cathedral.
There's a beautiful park all the way round the cathedral.
..with a small channel that goes right through the center of the city.
Some locals.. :)
An interesting entrance or exit. Wonder why it is there.
Maybe there used to be lots of bridges before. And now all that left are these interesting doors through the wall.
Here I am, with Sancho.
The whole city looks so clean and nature friendly.
We could just spend here all day.
Interesting titles on the wall. Something connected with Greenwich timing.
The city center near the bus station.
The oldest building in Winchester. More then 500 years old and still looks terrific.
I really love the way they make signs. The don't just put some silly plastic signs on, but as you can see the names and titles are being drawn by hand.
Really wonderful city.comments powered by Disqus
