Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live on the edge of Winchester - a historic city of 40,000 residents, about 60 miles south of London. London is an easy 55 minute train journey - why not visit a show or musical in the West End? We can help you arrange tickets if you wish. Many of the large museums (British Museum, Natural History Museum) have free entry. If you wish to travel by road, we are minutes from the M3 motorway which takes you to London in around an hour.

Our home is in Headbourne Worthy, a residential village about 2 miles north of Winchester. We have a couple of local shops, a post office, a farm shop, two pubs, recreation ground and children's play area all within walking distance.

Winchester's historic city centre has a good range of shops and restaurants. Our beautiful Cathedral is 1000 years old and after shopping in the lovely old high street, you can have a sandwich in the grounds. We have a leisure centre with swimming pool in town.
