Find UsThe St George Tea Room sits in the shadow of some of Winchester’s most historic sights, with Jane Austen’s House and Winchester College among the highlights nearby. Here’s how to find us:
Chesil Street car park is the nearest parking facility, leaving a pleasant half-mile walk along the weirs to the River Itchen. Walk from the car park towards the King Alfred statue, turn left at the weirs just by The Bishop on the Bridge pub, then follow the path along the river and round to the right following the old city wall. This will bring you to Wolvesey Castle and the Bishops Palace. Continue up College Street, past Winchester College and to the left turn in the road at the Kingsgate Arch. Turn left and you will see the Wykeham Arms. The Saint George Tea Room is opposite.
Winchester bus station is in the High Street near the King Alfred statue. Pick up the directions from The Bishop on the Bridge pub for the quickest (and nicest) walking route.
Winchester station is also just half a mile away. Walk from the station to the High Street, then turn right at the Buttercross statue and past Slug and lettuce. Walk down the treelined path to the front gate of the cathedral, then down the right hand side of the cathedral and into the close behind. Walk beside the green on your left, then towards Pilgrims School. Bear right and you will see two unique houses that look like Gingerbread (Cheney Court - Head Master of Pilgrims School residence). Exit the castle gate to the right of Cheney Court and you will find yourself with the city wall to your right and the Kingsgate Arch to your left. Go under the arch and walk towards the Wykeham Arms. The Saint George Tea Room is directly opposite.
