A winding road to Winchester

Winchester sits at the Western end of the South Downs National Park and is famed for its incredible Gothic Cathedral and castles. But there is so much more to the city than the wonderful architecture. Winchester is just one hundred and forty-five miles from the Medusa Juice Vape Shop in Peterborough, so you can explore the delights of the city and still have time to visit our store in person. While at the Medusa Juice Vape Store be sure to check out our range of e-liquids, you won’t find a better selection for your money. And whether you visit our Peterborough store or shop online, be sure to check out our new line of clothing and the wonderful vaping accessories that we offer.
Winchester attracts a lot of visitors to its Gothic Cathedral, first constructed in 1070 AD, but the area where the city stands has been inhabited since prehistoric times. There were multiple Iron Age forts and settlements in the area and after the Roman conquest the largest settlement served as capital for the local tribes. This settlement became one of the largest towns in Roman Britain and later developed into the Winchester we know today.

The departure of the Romans

After the Roman occupation had ended the town became known as Wintanceaster, named for the Anglo-Saxon fort built there. The Church of Peter and Paul was constructed in the 7th century by King Cenwalh of Wessex before later becoming the Old Minster, the first cathedral of the city.
During Anglo-Saxon times Winchester is described as the premier city of the West Saxon Kingdom. The Old Minster was enlarged in the 10th century, further demonstrating the importance of the city. After the construction of the new cathedral, the Old Minster was eventually destroyed. Winchester Cathedral has seen many upgrades and refurbishments over the centuries and it still stands as one of the largest cathedrals in Europe.
The City Cross on Winchester High Street is believed to date from the 15th century and features 12 statues of the Virgin Mary. This sign of the city’s religious history has survived over the years and can still be visited today.
There are also tree more recent sculpture decorating Winchester. These bronze creations include Queen Victoria which can be seen in the Great Hall, King Alfred facing the city with his sword raised from the centre of The Broadway and Horse and Rider at the Law Courts erected in 1974.

Important people and places

Winchester has also been home to many prominent figures, from King Henry III to Jane Austen who was buried in Winchester Cathedral. The poet John Keats wrote a number of his works while staying in the city.
As you walk around Winchester, taking in the historic sights and enjoying everything the city has to offer, consider a trip out to the Medusa Juice Vape Shops in Peterborough.

The famous Winchester Cathedral has been one of the city’s biggest attractions for almost a thousand years and welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. This Gothic Cathedral hosts a Christmas market as well as an open air ice rink in the winter. Winchester Cathedral is also home to the Winchester Bible, the largest surviving 12th century English bible.
But there are many more historic sites worth visiting in the area, including Wolvesey Castle, a Norman structure that was the Bishop’s palace. The Winchester City Mill is a working restored water mill that’s been in the city for centuries and offers visitors the opportunity to see flour milling demonstrations. And the Great Hall is a grand, medieval structure from the 13th century and all that remains of Winchester Castle.
Stepping out of history, the city is also home to the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium. This interactive, hands-on science centre has hundreds of science exhibitions and the UK’s largest capacity digital planetarium. Intended for young and old alike, the centre is open seven days a week and makes a great place to visit.
