Discover Winchester's past

For visitors with a passion for history and heritage, Hampshire Cultural Trust has launched a joint ticket to three of the attractions it manages in the city: 878 AD, Winchester City Museum and Westgate Museum.

Visitors to all three attractions will be able to discover Winchester’s history from its roots in the iron age to the emergence of the Anglo-Saxons and its part in the final journey of King Charles I.

Tickets are valid for a year and visitors can return to all three venues as many times as they like to explore the city’s unrivalled heritage and its place in the history of England.
