PARKS, GARDENS & OPEN SPACES

Winchester has a number of Parks, Gardens and open spaces. Some like Abbey  Gardens, adjacent the Broadway, Wolvesey Slips (Commonly known as The

Weirs), and Queen Eleanor’s Garden  (Behind the Great Hall) are maintained to a very high standard, are relatively easy to find and offer  delightful places to take one’s leisure. Others, such as Scott Garden and  Friary Garden, are less obvious and not so well known, but are well worth a visit.
