Winchester is very well-located for visits to lots of brilliant places!
It's on a direct train line to London, with regular trains. We organise a London visit EVERY SATURDAY! because we know students love to visit the sights and go shopping, as well as visit galleries, or just "chill out" watching the street performers in Covent Garden. We have different itineraries so that you will see different things if you stay for 2 weeks or more!
There is a half-day, local excursion every Thursday for all students.
Excursion destinations include: Stonehenge, New Forest, Portsmouth
Portsmouth is famous as a naval port and has a historic naval dockyard with lots of fascinating old ships, including Admiral Lord Nelson's Victory. The views from the relatively new Spinnaker Tower are spectacular and there is a large outlet shopping centre just next door.
Stonehenge and Salisbury, with its famous Cathedral and 800-year-old copy of Magna Carta, are both nearby
The New Forest National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty with its famous free roaming ponies is ideal for cycling, walking ...
We will make you a promise - you won't get bored!
