Us British are a peculiar bunch and especially when it comes to our favourite hobby of drinking. Join a local on this walking tour and discover our strange customs as we visit British peoples second home, The Pub! Discover how we have the Romans to thank for inventing the pub. See where the Bishop of Winchester Swithun performed a miracle which then allowed him to become a Saint and the pub named after him. As we pass both the Cathedral and Winchester College discover how even those are linked to this wonderful city's brewing heritage. We might even stop in the pub Lord Nelson used to visit while travelling from London to Portsmouth. Also it can't surely be a pub tour without passing at least one haunted pub! On the walk we will discover some of the amazing pub heritage Winchester has and will stop at 4 pubs to relax and enjoy a drink. In the first pub we visit the first beer is included. However other alcoholic and no alcoholic drinks are available in all the pubs we visit so please feel free to indulge as much or as little as you want!
Hi, I'm Rab, Born and bred in Glasgow I have now lived in the beautiful city of Winchester for 12 years and it's now where I call home. Having always been a pub person and love the great British tradition of 'having a pint ' I've discovered that Winchester has some amazing places to do just that. There isn't a pub in Winchester that I've not visited! Cheers!
