More about Marwell Hotel Colden Common

I felt like Tarzan!

by carlrea about Marwell Safari Lodge Hotel - Winchester

I'd never heard of this place before i started searching on the t'internet and i was worries that the glossy website did not portray accurately the hotel, however i was pleasantly surprised when we got here, The rooms were of the African colonial style and were clean and spacious.

The Marwell Hotel is an African style plantation house. Its Zavanna Restaurant offers local produce cooked by one of Hampshire top chefs, Jon Julian.
The Leisure Club offers a swimming pool, Spa, Sauna and a Sunbed. Zuri is the hotel Spa Therapies using Elemis products, offering a range of treatments for men and women. The East Horton Golf Centre, part of the hotel is located just 10 minutes away. The hotel is situated opposite Marwell Zoo and is within easy reach of Winchester and the New Forest. The food was excellent as was the service. The hotel is situated just opposite the Marwell Zoological park (although we never got to see this) The baloconiesd open out onto an abbundance of greenery and it actually makes you feel your in a jungle - ok sort of.

Not really cheap but you are getting something different.

Well recommended!

Travel from Winshester to Titchfield

by Tomsouthern

We plan to stay in Winchester and want to work on some geneology. I believe my relative who came to Jamestown, Va USA in 1620 was from Titchfield. How far is that from Winchester and the best way to travel.

Re: Travel from Winshester to Titchfield

by aaaarrgh

I would estimate it is about 12 miles by the shortest route between Winchester and Titchfield. Evidently it is a great idea to stay in Winchester, a lovely city, because (as I'm sure you already know) that is where the Hampshire Record Office is located.

For public transport information and route planning I suggest you look at

It seems the suggested route is to take a train to Fareham and then a bus the few miles to Titchfield.

Titchfield's about 20 miles from Winchester as the crow flies, near the town of Fareham. You can get there quite easily by public transport or drive yourselves.

This website will give you all the information you need for both methods of travel

Ah well, my crow must have found a short cut ;o)

No, your crow's right - mine got lazy and went by bus via Fareham

Travel Tips for Winchester

Jane Austen's house

by planxty

This is not really a "must see" unless you are a particularly literary minded visitor. It is the house where the author, Jane Austen, spent the last weeks of her life before she died on July 18th 1817, aged 41. she was subsequently buried in Winchester cathedral.

the house is now a private home and cannot be visited, but there is a small plaque commemorating her on the outside wall.

A Roman bit..........

by leics

Winchester was once an important Roman town ('chester' comes from 'castrum', a fort). Hardly anything remains visible now, although you can still trace the dead-straight Roman roads leading into and out of the town.

However, tucked away by the riverside (the Romans re-cut the river channel to better drain the town area) is a tiny remnant of the original town wall. You wouldn't notice it if it wasn't pointed out..........Winchester has much more important later history to celebrate, obviously.

Anyway, if you look to your left as you walk along the river towards the mill bridge, and the town (or to your right if you are walking away from them, obviously) there's a small green-gated alcove. And what remains of the once hugely impressive Roman town walls is inside.......

Walk along the river............

by leics

......because it really is rather pretty. It's called the 'Weirs Walk', because there is a weir. Obviously!

The Romans re-cut the channel of the river Itchen, to reduce flooding in their town. It's a particularly clear and fast-flowing river, with fish and ducks (and fishermen too, which one doesn't really expect to see in a town centre), prettily overhanging trees and lush banks (on the private-garden side).

It's a nice, gentle circular sort of walk, from or to the main town centre, taking in the Cathedral Close, Wolvesey Castle and Winchester College buildings as well as some rather nice town-council planting. Worth a stroll, whatever time of year you visit (it's tarmac, so no need to worry about muddy shoes).

The Great Hall

by leffe3

The Great Hall is the only remaining part of Winchester Castle, founded in 1067 and once the centre of government and court life.

King Henry III, who was born at the castle, added the Great Hall between 1222-35 and it was the Hall that survived the destruction of the castle by Cromwell's Roundheads in 1646.

Housed within the Hall for more than 700 years is the imitation table from which legends spring - King Arthur's Round Table. Originally constructed in the 13th century, the present form we see today was the result of repainting for Henry VIII.

Entry is free - open 10am - 5pm all year round except 25/26 December (and occasional civic functions).
