The Wykeham Arms

The Wykeham Arms is probably the most well known pub in Winchester. It's a 18th century coaching inn, situated between the Cathedral and the College and is named after William of Wykeham, the 14th century Bishop who founded the Winchester College. It is popular with both locals and tourists alike and has a very strong affinity with the College having some of its old desks complete with inkwells as tables. The pub serves food and offers Bed & Breakfast. I like the place, but it can get very crowded at times, which I guess is sign of its popularity.


  1. I just discovered your blog. I love the photos!

  2. I spent many a happy hour in there! The garden gets full as well, and the food is good. I liked it best in the winter, when the fires are lit. You can always find someone in there to talk to.
