The Winchester City and Cathedral Treasure Trail starts at:

The Broadway
SO23 9BE

Please Note:

This route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs but please note that you will encounter cobbles and wheelchair users may need to seek assistance or an alternative route to access the riverside from the road.

Bring your four-legged friends along!

The closest long stay pay and display car parks to the Trail start point are at Colebrook Street or at Chesil Street, both just a five minute walk away.

There are some fantastic events in Winchester’s calendar, including the amazing Christmas Markets and The Winchester Festival. During these events, some of the Clues may become obstructed or difficult to access, in particular Clues 14 and 15 which cannot be accessed during the Christmas Markets. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Winchester Visitor Information.

There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail and the route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes along the way. If the weather is nice, the Abbey Gardens and Weir riverside are lovely picnic spots.

Why not make a day of it and look inside Winchester Cathedral and Wolvesey Castle, or take a tour around Winchester College! You could even try one of our several other fascinating Trails, including two spooky Trails that feature Winchester’s haunted sites.

If you are looking to do the Trail today and don't have a printer, we do have a couple of local retailers (use the search below) or why not purchase a download and go to a local library where you can print it off. If there are no other options though, with a little patience (due to scale and format) the Trail can be used on a tablet and at a push a phone.

Sometimes you just want to speak to a real person though, so call one of the team on 01872 263692, Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm.
