And so, when it came time to pick last weekend's adventure, I decided it was high time we visit Winchester Cathedral- which happens to be number 98 on the list.
Winchester is only about an hour and a half outside of London, making it an easy day trip.

It is home to an 18th century mill, which still makes flour today.
Winchester College, founded in 1382, is believed to be the oldest school in England and remains one of the top ten public* schools in the country.
In the Great Hall of the ruined Winchester Castle you can see the legendary Round Table of King Arthur which has been hanging there for 700 years.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Winchester. There was plenty to see and do yet the town centre is very compact and pedestrian friendly. A fun day out for the whole family- and one more "must-see" location crossed off my Facebook list.
