A great place to go for a walk. There is a lot to look at and the trail goes off in different directions so you can explore. Go here often with friends to just talk and be away from the city.

Massive fields just outside Winchester city centre are home to a nature reserve and a marked trail where you are able to see all kinds of wildlife and Birdlife. Great on a clear dry day.

This a relatively small but beautiful nature reserve an ideal place to idle away an hour or so. No dogs are allowed. An oasis in Winchester.

Two hours to spend but not looking round shops. Close to the town centre, park in Derndate car park. It was a rainy day but lots to see both feathered and fury. One review said you could walk round it in twenty minutes, no doubt...More

We came across this by accident (walking from the Premier Inn into Winchester centre), and it feels very much like a 'hidden gem'. It's a lovely walk that takes you round in a circle. So many birds! Reed bunting, blue tits, grey/yellow wagtails, robins, blackbirds...More
