The University of Winchester is located in Winchester one of the most beautiful cathedral cities in the UK. Winchester is located at the centre of southern England, in the county of Hampshire, and is one hour away from London by train. Winchester is a picturesque city set on the edge of the South Downs, with Winchester Cathedral providing the main focal point from miles around.
The city is the ancient capital of England as chosen by King Alfred the Great as the seat of power for his Kingdom of Wessex. William the Conqueror commissioned the monks of Winchester to write his notorious Domesday Book which was housed in the Kings Castle. Now only the Great Hall remains of the castle and in it is the legendary 'Round Table of King Arthur'. Winchester is also the resting place of author Jane Austen, who is buried in Winchester Cathedral.
