Moving to Winchester

Thinking of Moving to Winchester from London?

The city of Winchester has been on Londoners’ radar ever since it claimed the title of ‘Best Place to Live in the UK’ back in 2016. It’s just an hour from Waterloo, and bang in the heart of the beautiful Hampshire countryside. So, there are plenty of reasons for young professionals, think about starting a family, to have it high on their list of possibilities.


5 Advantages of Moving to Winchester from London

1. It’s a great place to bring up a family. The New Forest National Park is just half an hour away, and you can be in Bournemouth with an hour. Long walks, water sports and horse riding are a way of life in this beautiful part of the world.

2. You can buy a house with space to grow. Property isn’t cheap in Winchester, but in comparison with London prices it will buy you an awful lot more space. St Cross is a great area to look if you’re searching for a Victorian house, and Fulflood to increasingly popular with young families.

3. A High Street you’ll love. Worried about leaving the rich diversity of shops and restauants in London? Winchester is well placed to allay your concerns. The city has a growing foodie reputation, and the mixture of brands and independents makes the High Street a great place to explore.

4. An energetic local community. There’s a local university and a lively interest in the arts across the city. Every year seems to increase the number of festivals the city is host to, and there’s ongoing exhibitions and music events every month. Each year Winchester hosts a large Christmas Market.

5. A city steeped in history. This is a seriously beautiful place to live. At the heart of the city is the elegant Winchester cathedral. Surrounding it is a luxurious green, and numerous narrow medieval streets populated with houses of all shapes and sizes. There’s layer upon layer of history to discover here, going right back to the Iron Age.
