Thinking of visiting Hampshire?
Winchester-Southampton-The New Forest-Basingstoke-Alton-Beaulieu-Andover-Whitchurch
People have been making pilgrimages for centuries to the cathedral and churches in these counties and continue to do so, finding spiritual renewal and revitalisation from their time in the buildings, enjoying the beauty of their settings and taking inspiration from the people who worship in them now.
There are over 400 Anglican churches in the Diocese of Winchester (most of Hampshire and part of East Dorset). These churches cover history from 907 to the present day and each has a unique connection with its local population and history.
