    Various: The High Street

    by deeper_blue Written Nov 3, 2012

    Winchester's pedestrian high street is the hub of the city. It stretches from King Alfred's statue up towards the Westgate. There are some great stalls outside selling fresh cheese, olives and meats, and a wide variety of shops, including decent pubs and coffee shops. Pictured is the buttercross, a 15th century monument.

    Marks and Spencer: Marks and Spencer

    The store began in 1884 in the UK and today it is the biggest department store chain in the country.

    Winchester's location has both clothing and groceries. In my opinion, the clothing is geared more toward a middle-aged group than younger people. The best thing about the store is the grocery section's pre-packaged foods that you can take for lunch on the go. They have a deal where you can get a sandwich or wrap and crisps and a beverage for a pretty good price. I often took advantage of this deal for my picnics on the cathedral lawn.
