Winchester in Literature

Come for a walk with the Winchester Tourist Guides and hear what famous (and less
famous) writers have had to say about the city from Saxon times to the present day, with readings from books, poems and even a song or two.

‘The city of Wintoncester, that ne old city, aforetime capital of Wessex, lay amidst its convex and concave downlands in all the brightness and warmth of a July morning.’
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D’Urbervilles
 
‘Blood owed out of the butchers’ shops into the
street, and fat rats dodged between the feet of the people who came to buy.’

Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth
