Join us for a hike that takes us to Winchester Cathedral and also past the Great Hall - the resting place of King Arthur's Round Table.

We then go for a Protected content hike through woodland, across streams and up Catherine's Hill, through fields and another small hill before meandering our way back to the town centre

We will have a short ( Protected content ) stop at The Bridge Inn Pub in Shawford for a toilet break. We will not stop for a long lunch break there. Best to bring sandwiches with you. There are places along the way we can stop to eat our lunch (by one of the streams)

We then end the hike passing a famous 17th century Hospice, Winchester School and Jane Austen's House

You can end the day with a visit to the Christmas market behind the Cathedral and / or do some ice skating and other activities
