Winchester offers history and perfect life for all the family

Winchester offers history and perfect life for all the family

More and more these days, people are looking for something a little extra from the places in which they live. While areas like London are still as popular as ever, there are also a growing number of people for whom history and culture will play a big part in where they want to live, and this is no more true than one of Hampshire's most iconic towns.

People who are out and about and seeking property for sale in Winchester will be struck by its history and beautiful architecture, which attracts many tourists every year. However, it is also the perfect settlement for families to bring up their children, with the peace of mind that this will be the ideal setting for their formative years.

When you have family in mind, there will be few things you care more about in your choice of town or city than how good the school system there is, and thankfully England's former capital lives up to what families would hope for in this regard.

With 17 different primary schools on offer, parents can take their time to assess them all and make sure that they have chosen the one that best suits their child. There are also three secondary schools in the area, while parents favouring private schooling may opt to send their child off to learn in the wonderful and scenic settings of Winchester College, complete with its original building, constructed in 1382.

For those who want to feel close to their area, and their fellow residents, one very attractive feature of Winchester will be the fact that it is still home to the UK's largest farmers' market, which takes place on two Sundays per month, allowing people to buy fresh and local goods.

However, it is the landmarks of Winchester that will make it most favourable to those who are looking to move there. With castles, churches and many other structures prevalent throughout, there will be much for families to discover and enjoy together.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801491661-ADNFCR
