Day out in Winchester

Last Saturday was one of most wonderful days I have spent since coming to the UK. Winchester looked even more beautiful as it was a sunny day. The day started with meeting two of my brother’s colleagues and we walked through the water meadows of the River Itchen, which was amazing. Then climbed St. Catherine’s Hill which was about 318ft, the view from the top the hill was lovely.

We spent a lot of time in wandering around the high street. The high street was vibrant with the Christmas lights and filled with discount sales. A street performance by a brass band was the central attraction on the high street.

There is also a massive cathedral right in the centre of the city (photo below), which is one of the largest cathedrals in England. The queue was very long, so we didn’t go inside.


The Christmas market and the ice rink near the cathedral were filled with tourists.  My first experience on the ice rink was scary but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Then we went to the England’s oldest pub and chilled out with some soft drinks. The day did not end there, as then came the most awaited part of the day, Poker night. Poker with drinks, spicy chicken and pizzas. Wow! What a fantastic day it was.
