The local area guide to living in Winchester: The Local Area Guide

Winchester is one of the UK’s most picturesque cities, upholding England’s reputation for cobbled streets, stone architecture, and grand cathedrals. In fact, Winchester Cathedral is the lengthiest building of its kind in the whole of Europe. The city is also home to the famous Winchester Castle, which is the alleged site of King Arthur’s Round Table. Often cited as one of the country’s best places to live, and with good reason, Winchester strikes the perfect balance between city and country. Quick and convenient travel to London makes for an easy commute, while fantastic scenery is provided by its prime position on the end of the South Downs.

This blend of convenience and tranquillity has not gone unnoticed, and in recent times Winchester has begun catering to increased demands for new homes and modernisation. As such, major housing and town centre developments will likely begin to impact the town in years to come. An already desirable location, a mostly affluent population is attracted to residences here – with the exception of the student body, of course.

Information about the local residents

Houses in Winchester are expensive, and that leads to a high number of affluent and professional residents. The exception to that rule is the thriving student population, which helps boost the city’s nightlife.

The overall population count is currently around 118,000, but that number is on the rise and is expected to hit around 125,000 by 2020. The population is largely White British – a demographic that accounts for around 90% of residents.

Nearby schools

Winchester is renowned for its excellent educational reputation, with frequently high results and good reviews achieved by both private and state schools. St Peter’s Catholic Primary School tops the SATs tables in the area, while Compton Primary School follows closely behind. The area’s three state schools – Kings’ School, The Henry Beaufort School, and The Westgate School – are all also highly regarded for providing a high level of education.

For independent education, students can attend the all-boys Winchester College, which was founded in 1382, or the all-girls St Swithun’s – both of which are frequently found near the top of UK-wide league tables.

Getting around

One of Winchester’s biggest selling points is its convenient transport links. Its proximity to the capital and regular train links make it a popular commuter spot, with quarter-hourly services leaving for London Waterloo, and arriving in around 70 minutes. There are also frequent trains to Portsmouth, Southampton, Birmingham and other major cities.

A number of major roads leading to Winchester, such as the M3, the A34 and the A31 connect it to other parts of the country, although these can suffer from heavy traffic during busy times.

Local shops

Winchester is a lovely choice for a day out, with endless scenery to be admired both in the centre and on the outskirts. History buffs will want to take in the castle and cathedral, and there are also 16th Century streets in the Constabulary which are well worth visiting.

Shopping is another popular option in the city, with a charming range of independent shops, as well as a shopping centre housing favoured high street names. A farmer’s market comes to the city every other Sunday – one of the largest in the country, as a matter of fact – and there’s also an antique market on Kings Walk. In the evenings you’ll find an abundance of bars, pubs and restaurants to visit. The annual Hat Fair brings pop-up street theatre to a number of venues around the city, and has been an important cultural event in the city for over 40 years.
