Stay in the heart of Winchester in a 16th-century hotel with walled gardens - including breakfast

When you're visiting the home of King Arthur's famous Round Table, where better to stay than the 16th-century Winchester Royal Hotel? This historical establishment is located right in the heart of the city, so you're within walking distance from some of Winchester's best sights, including the spectacular Winchester Cathedral.

Having undergone a recent refurbishment, the hotel has perfected the tricky task of blending modern conveniences with traditional interiors, including a grandiose spiral staircase. After a day of taking in the sights, the walled gardens are the ideal spot for an after-dinner stroll, that's if you don't fancy spending the evening enjoying the view of them from the comfort of the Conservatory Restaurant.

There's plenty to do in Winchester; visit South Downs National Park for a country escape or uncover Winchester's historic past through the city's wealth of museums and architecture. If a game of golf is what you're after, Winchester Royal Hotel is just a 10-minute drive from Royal Winchester Golf Club.
