Day Excursions 2018

Hospital of the Cross & Winchester Cathedral

Departs: 4th April 2018 | 1 day


Following time to purchase refreshments on arrival we take a guided tour around the Hospital with a Brother, wearing his traditional gown and trencher hat.

The Hospital of St Cross & Almshouse of Noble Poverty are nestled in the water meadows alongside the River Itchen. Renowned for the tranquillity of its setting and the beauty of its architecture, the Hospital is one of England's oldest continuing almshouses. The fine medieval buildings have provided food and shelter for hundreds of years. At the heart of the Hospital's inner quadrangle is a wonderful Norman church. Nearby stands a classic medieval hall and kitchen, as well as a Tudor cloister.

After free time for lunch in Winchester we will then take a guided tour of Winchester Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in Europe, with the longest nave and greatest overall length of any Gothic cathedral in Europe.

Price includes admissions & guided tours.
