    If you’re looking to find the history of Winchester then this is your tour! The guide was funny and as knowledgable as google!! A great way to navigate your way around and decide what you want to go back to and explore more. If you are interested in Jane Austen then there is something for you too and a quirky pub at the end! Make sure you finish your homework!
