We might be going there for the day - is there a nice park to go to? OR good sightseeing (with a 4 y/o).

Any ideas gratefully recieved.

NO my parents live near there, in laws in Sussex

You can go and visit them if you like, they are rather bonkers though

The cathedral and grounds are lovely.

There is the Round Table, is the 4 yo a boy? If so he would prob like that as is all legends etc

Abbey Gardens (down on the Broadway near statue of King Alfred) has good playground

Lots of nice shops, pubs etc

Hotel du Vin nice for lunch

Marwell Zoo is good but about 10 miles away

No idea about places actually in Winchester, I've only made it as far as the High Street, but I do recommend the Park & Ride, St Catherines I think it's called and it's really easy to get to from here. Once you've got your ticket you can use any of the park and ride buses. It was really quick into the town centre and cheap

Big swimming pool with kids area is within walking distance of City Centre and has play areas just outside it as well as some fields, small river and lots of ducks.

thanks for that everyone . I like the sound of the Round Table and park & ride sounds a good idea.

CD, I was going to take my laptop so I could show your ils what you get up to!! If we go it will be either Sat or Sun but possibly not this week. I should know tomorrow for sure, I'll let you know.
