This tempting holiday is based in wonderful Winchester, a graceful city nestling on the edge of the South Downs National Park. It’s most notable landmark is undoubtedly the thousand-year-old cathedral where the famous author, Jane Austen was laid to rest. This stunning building is one of the largest cathedrals in Europe and features a blend of Norman and Gothic architecture. Inside you’ll find seventeenth century Morley Library, the illuminated Winchester Bible and a Norman crypt. Another must see is Winchester Castle where the medieval Great Hall houses King Arthur’s round table.
