Gates

Within the Great Hall are these 2 large stainless steel gates which were designed and made by Antony Robinson as a gift from the people of Hampshire to commemorate the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1981. I wonder what we'll get Prince William & Kate Middleton for their wedding in April?

  2. The walls have a list of all the members of Parliament for Hampshire (the county Winchester is in) up to the reign of Queen Victoria See here.
