Eating and shopping in Winchester

Our three days in Winchester were delightful: lots of nice, independent shops to browse, nice places to eat, and quite a lot of places of historical interest to visit.

Ocean Drive Living on Parchment Street is a charming, Scandinavian-style shop and we enjoyed browsing.

Loved the arrangement of the candles in the window

Furniture, clothes, kitchenware

simple, clean lines

and more candles

We had lunch at Zizi twice


On the Friday there was hardly anyone there - on Saturday it was packed, we had difficulty finding a table

loved the salad

We had a drink at The William Walker on Friday night

and then moved on to La Place, on The Square, opposite the Cathedral for our evening meal

which looked very inviting at night

we liked the way the napkins were folded

and liked the ambiance too.

Next to La Place is the Hambledon, and we had a look the next day

lots to see in the shop

very stylish


everything was beautifully arranged

We stopped at the Refectory for a cup of tea after our visit to the Cathedral


we had to wait for ages before we could find a table. A pity we could not sit outdoors, but it was a very cold day


we loved the fountain made out of local stone

It was pouring on Saturday night and we did not feel like venturing far. Fortunately, Pitcher and Piano was right next to our hotel

our meal was delicious, the waitress was extremely helpful and we had a great time.
