The Great Hall

Posted by Picasa
The Great Hall is the only remaining part above ground of Winchester Castle. The original Winchester Caste was built by William the Conqueror (1066). In 1222 the original buildings were replaced by the buildings that stand today. During the English Civil War the castle was held by the Royalists until its capture in 1646. Oliver Cromwell then ordered the Castle to be demolished but the Great Hall was kept.


  1. I wonder what did they use all of the rooms for? So many

  2. Oh you know those kings and queens, they always need 1000 rooms!
