The Wykeham Arms is a unique 18th century coaching inn, situated
between Winchester Cathedral and the famous college. Named after
William of Wykeham, the 14th century Bishop who founded the nearby
college. Postcode SO239PE.
Wi-Fi is available.
Entering the Wykeham is taking a step back into the past. It has a
very strong affinity with the scholarly establisment of Winchester
College and the curiosities and memorabilia jostle with each other for
space. You may even find yourself sitting at one of the colleges' old
desks, complete with inkwell.
Early in 1817 Jane Austen died in a house in nearby College Street from what is now known as Addison's Disease, at the age of 41. The house is not open to the public but is identified with a blue plaque.
