We only spent a day in Winchester, but it was a sweet little town, full of heritage. The shop owners were friendly. We visited an art exhibit in a beautiful garden, and everyone was so welcoming. Housing prices are amazing.

Had gelato in a great little town square. If it wasn't such a far drive from where we work, I'd move there!
