Winchester may offer lovely life

The city of Winchester has a lot to offer a family looking for the perfect place to call home.

With prices on the rise across London, many people are considering relocating outside of the capital city to get more value for money.

There is plenty of property for sale in Winchester that would suit most budgets and could be a great option for families seeking out a city that offers a great lifestyle.

Winchester is a picturesque location that attracts thousands of tourists each year who are interested to find out more about its history and architecture.

Once England's capital city, Winchester has a whole host of amenities and facilities that will suit people relocating with young children.  

The city is home to more than 15 different primary schools so parents have plenty of choice to make sure that they have found the one that best suits their child.

There are also three secondary schools in the region, in addition to the famous private school of Winchester College. Established in 1382, the school is still in the original building and maintains many of its traditions.

As well as the college's buildings, Winchester is home to a number of historic landmarks, including castles and churches.

The world-famous Winchester Cathedral has stood for more than 900 years and is the final resting place of several early English monarchs, as well as respected writer Jane Austin. 

In terms of shopping, two Sundays a month, Winchester hosts the UK’s largest farmer's market and there are also plenty of independent and national retailers in the city.

For young kids, there is the River Park Leisure Centre which offers a whole range of sporting activities to keep them active and there is also the Everyman Cinema, which shows a number of top movies.

Marwell Wildlife is also a popular day out as it allows children a chance to get up close to the natural world by learning more about their favourite animals.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801738526-ADNFCR
