Winchester pub tour


Visit 4 traditional pubs popular with both locals and tourists where you can relax and enjoy a beer. 

Along the way learn how we have the Romans to thank for inventing the pub. Discover where the Bishop of Winchester, Swithun, performed a miracle and the pub named after it. 

See which pub Lord Nelson visited while travelling from London to Portsmouth. Discover Winchester's amazing pub history, at one point the city had 132 pubs and 4  breweries! 

The walk takes us past the magnificent cathedral and Winchester college both of which have links to the cities brewing heritage. Also it wouldn't be a pub tour without at least one ghost story!
