SITUATION AND HISTORY
Welcome to the Westgate Inn, Winchester. Conveniently located at the top of the High Street overlooking the medieval Westgate and a short walk from the railway station and Tower Street multi-storey car park.
The Inn has operated since 1877 when the railways extended their network from London. At that time a trip to the West-Country could take more than two days and journeys needed to be broken along the way.
A network of inns was developed along the route to accommodate travellers. Now the train takes merely an hour from London and Winchester is a hugely popular holiday centre with its beautiful architecture and historic sites.
