Winchester Relocation From a Local Removals Company

Many of the movers we’ve helped with their Winchester relocation tell us it was love at first sight. And Winchester’s that kind of place. Its medieval streets, 11th century cathedral and links to King Arthur make it a magnet for movers with a love of history. For London movers with a young family, Winchester is the perfect solution. There’s easy access to the south coast, and plenty of great schools.

Schepens is a Winchester removals company, and we’ve been relocating families in this glorious city for over a century now. Once settled, few of them want to move away from its excellent resources, ideal location in the heart of Hampshire, or easy access to London. We asked some of our customers to let new arrivals what to expect from the city.

1. Put Your Car in the Garage

Winchester is marvellous in many respects but its one way system makes it a nightmare for drivers. Thankfully it’s small enough to make walking or cycling a pleasant alternative, wherever you want to get to. It’s a great city for wandering and exploring. There’s always some historic detail you’ve not noticed before, or a beautiful courtyard that’s evaded your eye.

2. Take a Walk Through the Water Meadows

Winchester sits on the River Itchen, which is a ‘chalk stream’. This may not sound very exciting but in fact it’s a rarity. There are only 210 chalk streams in the world, and 160 of them are in England. They’re characterised by extremely clear water, and make a great habitat for watercress. Celebrate your Winchester relocation with a walk through the water meadows up to the medieval St Cross Hospital. It’s an absolute delight.

3. Markets, Shops and Fairs

You’ll quickly discover that Winchester is a tourist hotspot, both winter and summer. Some people see this as a problem to be overcome, others welcome the steady influx of global visitors – and income. One of the major advantages is the great range of shops on offer, the high quality of the regular markets, and the brilliant Christmas Market which vies with its European counterparts.

4. Access to the South Coast

If you move to Winchester with young children, there’s a whole host of delights awaiting you. Access to the south coast is easy and quick. Portsmouth’s probably the closest beach resort, but Bournemouth and Lymington are under an hour away. You’ll also have the New Forest on your doorsteps, with mile upon mile of ancient heath and woodland to explore.
