Cornflowers

On the corner of College Street and Kingsate Street is Cornflowers which is the Winchester College Gift Shop. Profits from the shop help fund a place for one of the sixteen Quiristers at the college (choir boys).
The building was once the Winchester College Tuck Shop, and is named after the blue flowers that are worn by Winchester supporters on Winchester Day.

  1. I was once a chorister many years ago, good way of saving on fees. Is that a fold up bike?

  6. I spent quite a lot of money in there over the years - they sell some gorgeous gifts.
    The doorway to the right was equally well-used.
