Winchester Castle and Great Hall gives you and the kids a chance to visit one of the finest remaining medieval halls, which contains a replica of King Arthur’s Round Table.

The hall is all that is left of Winchester Castle, which was built in 1067! It is a vast stone building with lots of interesting features to check out including beautiful stained glass windows.
Seeing the ancient Round Table is a must. It is 5.5 metres in diametre and weighs 200kg! Kids will be fascinated by the history and legends surrounding the table.
Everyone will enjoy Queen Eleanor’s Garden, which is a nice little historically planted garden at the back of the Great Hall and a chance to get back out into the sunshine and indulge some imagination play.
