Historische(s) Gebäude

Romsey Abbey Church
Broadlands House
King Johnʹs House, Romsey
Sadlerʹs Mill, Romsey

Romsey (/ˈrɒmzi/ ROM-zee) is a historic market town in the county of Hampshire, England. Romsey was home to the 17th-century philosopher and economist William Petty and the 19th-century British prime minister, Lord Palmerston, whose statue has stood in the town centre since 1857. The town was also home to the 20th-century naval officer and statesman Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, who lived at Broadlands. Notable buildings include a 13th-century hunting lodge, an 18th-century coaching inn and the 19th-century Corn Exchange.

Romsey is one of the principal towns in the Test Valley Borough and lies on the River Test, which is known for fly fishing, predominantly trout. As of 2019, the town centre is undergoing substantial remodelling, with the stated aim of improving access for pedestrians and cyclists. Hampshire County Council expect the work to be complete in the summer of 2019.


  • Romsey Abbey is a parish church of the Church of England in Romsey. Until the dissolution it was the church of a Benedictine nunnery. It is the largest parish church in the county.

    The church was originally built during the 10th century, as part of a Benedictine foundation. The surviving church is the town's outstanding feature, which is all the more remarkable because the abbey, as a nunnery, would have been less well financially endowed than other religious establishments of the time.

  • Broadlands is an 18th-century country house located just outside the town centre. It was designed in the Palladian style by the famous architect Capability Brown before being completed by Henry Holland in 1788. It has had a number of illustrious occupants, including Lord Palmerston and Louis Mountbatten. Broadlands has been the setting of two royal honeymoons, namely those of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in 1947 and then Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981. The house itself is a Grade I listed building and the surrounding gardens are Grade II listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. Both are open to visitors on weekday afternoons in summer.
  • King John's House is a 13th-century building that allegedly served as a hunting lodge for King John when he hunted in the nearby New Forest. This is unlikely, however, since it was built in 1256 and therefore 40 years after the king's death, though there is evidence that the beams were reused from an earlier structure. The original building and adjoining Tudor cottage have a number of unusual historical features, including 14th-century wall decorations and graffiti, a floor made from cattle metapodials, and a traditional monastic garden. Locals claim the house is haunted, with the Hampshire Ghost Society encountering a shrouded figure during their investigations between 2002 and 2008. The house is a Grade I listed building.
  • The White Horse Hotel is a Grade II listed, 18th-century coaching inn whose timber frames date back to the 1450s. Its medieval stone cellars indicate that the site may have hosted guests to Romsey Abbey as early as the 12th century. The existing assembly rooms are said to be where Lord Palmerston first engaged in political debate in the early 1800s. The building housed a hotel and brasserie, which until 2019, was owned and operated by Silks Hotels.
  • The existence of Sadler's Mill, the only mill to be developed on the main course of the River Test, is first recorded in the 16th century, when it functioned as a corn and grist mill. It was at one time owned by Lord Palmerston and later the Broadlands estate before passing to various private owners. Milling ceased in 1932 and the building was left derelict for many years until its restoration in 2005. Carbon dating during this restoration placed the earlier structure in the mid-17th century. It is a Grade II listed building.

GB-SO23 9LF Winchester


Historische(s) Gebäude

Winchester Cathedral
Nave of Winchester Cathedral
Hospital of St Cross, Winchester
Great Hall, Winchester Castle

Winchester is an historic cathedral city in the English county of Hampshire within the South East region. Erstwhile capital of England, it was from here that Alfred the Great governed the newly unified country. Visitors appreciate Winchester first and foremost for its cathedral, but also for its other ancient buildings, its medieval centre, its markets and museums.


Winchester has a long history: there has been continuous settlement on the site for over 2,000 years.

Winchester began as a Celtic hill fort, pre-dating the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 CE. After the Roman conquest, the town grew and became known as Venta Belgarum. After prospering under Roman imperial rule for several centuries, Winchester discovered a new identity as an important Saxon city. King Alfred the Great named Winchester as the capital, first of the Kingdom of Wessex and later all of England south of the Danelaw - despite the growing importance of London, it remained so until the Norman invasion of 1066. During the Middle Ages, Winchester was renowned for its woollen goods, among other produce.

Winchester is now an attractive and peaceful cathedral city deep in the southern English countryside, close to London and Southampton.


Winchester's city centre is known for its narrow pedestrian streets and overhanging medieval buildings. Besides the cathedral, the main landmark is the Statue of King Alfred the Great, first king and nominal founder England. Nearby is the Victorian Guild Hall, which hosts many events throughout the year. Also of special interest are the Pentice, a group of old shops arcaded at the front, and the Butter Cross, dating back to the 15th century and built with a tax levied on people caught eating butter during Lent. The River Itchen, a crystal clear chalk stream, flows through multiple channels in central Winchester, seemingly just to surprise visitors by its tinkling presence at every turn.

  • Church of St. Swithun upon Kingsgate, Saint Swithun Street, SO23 9JP (perched atop the arch of the Kingsgate, one of the two surviving city gates). Open during daylight hours except for occasional services.. This was once a not uncommon position for a place of worship in England, but St. Swithun's is the only one remaining today. The interior of this tiny church is very plain, with whitewashed walls and an unadorned wooden ceiling. Sit for a moment in the simple wooden pews and it is hard not to feel a sense of peace. Free (but donations gratefully accepted). St Swithun-upon-Kingsgate Church on Wikipedia (updated Jun 2015)
  • Winchester Cathedral, 9 The Close, SO23 9LS, +44 1962 853224. M–Sa 9:30AM–6PM; 12:30PM–3PM (restricted access during services). A Norman cathedral begun in 1079, containing the Winchester Bible and featuring the longest Gothic nave in the world. The cathedral was built on rafts floating on a peat marsh! For 800 years the raft was able to carry the weight but, by the 19th century, the cathedral was in danger of collapse and the foundations were rebuilt by a diver working underwater; look out for the statue and story of this "Winchester Diver" if you visit. The cathedral is the venue for regular recitals and concerts, and hosts Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's Summer Series. The famous English novelist Jane Austen died in Winchester in 1817 and is buried in the cathedral. A statue by British artist Anthony Gormley is to be found, somewhat unexpectedly, in the crypt of the cathedral. Hidden away in cathedral Close is the Dean Garnier Garden, which offers splendid views of the cathedral. Pay special attention to the stonework, and how the medieval builders suffered from problems with subsidence. Adults £7.50; concessions £5.50; students £4; under 16s free. The Tower Tour and Audio Tour cost an additional £6 and £3 respectively. Winchester Cathedral on Wikipedia (updated Jun 2015)
  • Winchester City Mill, Bridge Street, SO23 0EJ, +44 1962 870057. Opening hours are typical of the National Trust - that is to say, very complicated - but in brief, the mill is open Mar–Oct: Sa Su 11AM–4PM and much more often in summer; see full details here. Owned by the National Trust, this old water mill has been fully restored. You can visit the working areas and a rather exciting walkway under the mill almost at river level. The building also houses the Winchester Youth Hostel (see 'Sleep'). Adults £2; Children £1; National Trust members free. Winchester City Mill on Wikipedia 
  • Winchester College, College Street, +44 1962 621100. Visit by guided tour only, which run several times most days of the year; see full details here.. One of England's independent (fee-paying) schools, founded in 1382 and believed to be the oldest continuously running school in the country. Guided tours are available, lasting approximately 1 hour and include Chamber Court; the Gothic Chapel with its 14th-century vaulted roof; College Hall; the 17th-century red brick schoolroom built in the style of Christopher Wren; the original cloister. Adults £7; Concessions £6; Under 12s free. Winchester College on Wikipedia 
  • Winchester Great Hall and King Arthur's Round Table (The Castle), Castle Avenue, SO23 8PJ, +44 1962 846476. Daily 10AM–5PM, closed Dec 25–26. The only remaining part of Winchester Castle is the Great Hall, built in the 13th century by Henry III. This is the home of King Arthur's Round Table, now thought to be a fake commissioned by Henry VIII. Free; donations encouraged. Winchester Castle on Wikipedia 
  • Wolvesey Castle, +44 1962 854766. Open Apr–Sep 10AM–5PM. This palace was the chief residence of the Bishops of Winchester and its extensive ruins still reflect their importance and wealth. Free. Wolvesey Castle on Wikipedia 
  • Hospital of St Cross, St Cross Rd, (1 mile south of city centre; grid reference SU476277), +44 1962 878218. The Hospital of St Cross was founded in the 1130s by Bishop Henry of Blois to accommodate thirteen poor men and is still home to 25 Brothers, whose apartments form one side of the historic quadrangle. The chapel is an unspoiled example of the period during which Norman architecture transitions into Gothic. The Hospital has a long tradition of hospitality and now offers refreshment to visitors in the restored Hundred Men's Hall. The traditional Wayfarer's Dole is still given at the Porter's Gate to all travellers who request it. Accessible by road, by a half-hour walk along the River Itchen (from City Mill; signposted), or by Solent Blue Line bus 47 (buses run twice per hour M-Sa and once per hour on Su; see Get around above for bus company details; alight at the Bell Inn). Open any reasonable hour. Free. Hospital of St Cross on Wikipedia (updated Jan 2018)

Windsor Castle
St John the Baptistʹs parish, Windsor
Guildhall, Windsor

Windsor and Eton are twin towns, in Berkshire, in the South East of England, separated by the River Thames and joined by Windsor Bridge.

Windsor is an ancient town most famous for its castle, construction of which began in 1075, and which is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. The royal standard flies from the keep of the Castle when the Queen is in residence.

Eton is a smaller town, dominated by Eton College, the ancient public (US English:private) school which educates many of England's establishment (especially those who go on to become politicians, judges and diplomats).


These places to see are all within the central area of Windsor or within Eton just across Windsor Bridge. They are all within easy walking distance of each other, the main shopping center and both railway stations.

  • Windsor Castle +44 20 7766-7304. Daily (for exceptions see website) 9:45AM-5:15PM (4.15PM Nov-Feb). The largest and oldest occupied castle in the world and still an official royal residence. Much of the castle, including the magnificent State Apartments and St Georges Chapel are visitable. The apartments are furnished with some of the finest works of art from the royal collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Canaletto and Gainsborough. Standard: Adult £19.20, Over 60/Student (with valid ID) £17.50, Under 17/Disabled £11.30, Under 5 Free, Family £49.70 (2 adults and 3 under 17s). Windsor Castle on Wikipedia

The guards are stationed at Victoria Barracks and march up to and from the Castle accompanied by the guards band playing traditional military marches as well as popular songs. Free. 
  • Guildhall, High Street (by Windsor Parish Church). Built by Sir Christopher Wren, it is famous for its pillars, which were insisted on by the towns burgesses, even though Wren insisted they were unnecessary. To make his point, he built the pillars but ensured a gap was left between them and the roof they apparently support. Windsor Guildhall on Wikipedia 
  • Windsor Parish Church, High Street (by the Guildhall). St. John The Baptist, built 1822, replaced earlier Church edifices that stood since 1084 on the site, 80 meters from the Henry VIII gate of Windsor Castle. Peter Scheemakers, famous for his sculptures in Westminster Abbey, created a memorial to Topham Foote or Foot, son of Samuel Foote and Arabella Topham Foote, that greets visitors using the High Street entrance. The memorial includes the young man's bust and the Foote crest. A second Scheemakers' memorial honors Topham Foote's mother and her second husband Thomas Reeve. Most tourists consider The Last Supper by Francis Cleyn a must-view. The painting and the frame were fully restored in 2003 under the leadership of Churchwarden Michael Harding. George III gave the painting and frame to Windsor Parish Church after it hung nearly a century in St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. 
  • Eton College, Eton,  +44 1753 671177. March-early October, see website.

Historische(s) Gebäude/Weltkulturerbe

Old Royal Naval College
Royal Observatory, Greenwich
O2 Arena, near to Blackwall Tunnel, Greenwich

Greenwich (englische Aussprache ɡrɛnɪtʃ) ist ein Stadtteil von London im Südosten der Metropole, an der Themse gelegen. Der Ort ist Heimat des weltbekannten Observatoriums und durch ihn verläuft der "Nullmeridian". Als traditionelle Basis der englischen Marine, beherbergt Greenwich nicht nur das königliche Marineakademie, sondern auch das Nationale Maritime Museum. Große Teile des Ortes gehören zum UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe.


Zu den Royal Museums Greenwich gehören das Royal Observatory, das National Maritime Museum, das Queens House und die Cutty Sark. Seit 1997 bildet der Greenwich Park mit allen Gebäuden die UNESCO-Weltkulturerbestätte Maritime Greenwich. Aufgeführt ist für jede Sehenswürdigkeit jeweils der Einzelpreis, es gibt aber auch verschiedene Kombitickets.

Die nächste Haltestelle für "Maritime Greenwich" ist DLR no-text roundel.svg Cutty Sark

  • Cutty Sark, King William Walk. Geöffnet: Täglich 10.00 bis 17.00 Uhr (letzter Einlass 16.00 Uhr). Preis: Erwachsene £ 12.15, Kinder (5-15 Jahre) £ 6.30 (Stand 2015).
    Die Cutty Sark war ein Teeklipper und das schnellste Schiff ihrer Zeit. Sie wurde 1869 gebaut. 2007 brannte das Innere des Schiffs, das gerade restauriert wurde, fast völlig aus. Wegen der Restaurierung waren ein Großteil der Einrichtung und Ausrüstung nicht an Bord. Seit April 2012 ist die Cutty Sark wieder in alter Pracht zu bestaunen. Sie liegt in einem neuen Trockendock mit Besucherzentrum, heute kann man auch unter dem Schiff spazieren.
  • Royal Naval College, King William Walk. Geöffnet: 10.00 bis 17.00 Uhr. Preis: Eintritt frei (Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre, Painted Hall und Kapelle).
    Am Ufer der Themse befand sich einst Greenwich Palace. Der königliche Palast ging auf König Edward (1272-1307) zurück. Heinrich VIII. ließ den Palast ausbauen, außerdem entstand eine Werft. Unter dem Lordprotektor Oliver Cromwell diente der Palast als Gefängnis und wurde später abgerissen. 1694 stiftete Königin Maria II. ein Hospital für alte Seemänner, ab 1696 entstanden das King William Building und das Queen Mary Building. 1751 waren die Gebäude vollendet, der verantwortliche Architekt war Christopher Wren. Eine Vorgabe für die Anordnung der Gebäude war es dass das Queen's House von der Themse her sichtbar blieben musste. Wren entschied sich dafür, das Gebäude in 4 symmetrische Teile zu gliedern, die um eine zentrale Achse gruppiert sind.
    Bis 1869 diente das Gebäude als Hospital. Vier Jahre später wurde es das Royal Naval College, die Marineakademie bestand bis 1998. Seit 2010 befindet sich im Royal Naval College das Discover Greenwich Centre. Zu besichtigen sind im King William Building die Painted Hall und die Kapelle im Queen Mary Building.
  • Queen’s House, Greenwich Park. Geöffnet: Täglich 10.00 bis 17.00 Uhr (Stand 2015). Preis: Eintritt frei.
    Inigo Jones erhielt 1616 von König Jakob I. den Auftrag ein standesgemäßes Haus für seine Gemahlin Anna von Dänemark zu errichten. Bis 1635 entstand ein Meisterwerk im palladianischen Stil. Nach dem Top der Königin 1919 wurde das Projekt erstmal auf Eis gelegt. König Charles I. ließ das Gebäude dann ab 1629 für seine Frau Henrietta Maria fertig stellen. Queen's House stand im Park von Greenwich Palace, der später abgerissen wurde. 1807 wurden, als das Gebäude als Seemannsschule diente, die Kollonadengänge und die Seitenflügel angefügt.
    Von der Great Hall führt die schöne Tulip Staircase in das Obergeschoss. Die Treppe ist die erste freitragende Wendeltreppe Englands. Im Obergeschoss befanden sich die Gemächer des Königs und der Königin. Seit 1937 werden hier Marinegemälde und Porträts von Persönlichkeiten der Seefahrtsgeschichte ausgestellt.
    Das Queen's House mit seinen symmetrischen Proportionen, den schönen Marmorböden, schmiedeeisernen Balustraden und kunstvollen Decken ist das Vorbild für viele Häuser im palladianischen Stil.

    Durch die königliche Sternwarte verläuft der Nullmeridian, der den Ausgangspunkt für das geographische Koordinatensystem der Erde bildet. Die Berechnung der Weltzeit und der einzelnen Zeitzonen beruht ebenfalls auf der "Greenwich Mean Time", der durchschnittlichen Zeitmessung von Greenwich. Ein großer Ball auf dem Dach des Gebäudes gibt auch heute noch den Menschen im Umland und den Schiffen im Hafen die genaue Zeit an. Im Observatorium gibt es eine gelungene Ausstellung mit vielen Ausstellungsstücken und Gerätschaften aus der Geschichte des Hauses. Der Eintritt ist frei, man muss allerdings trotzdem zum Ticketschalter, um sich dort ein kostenloses Ticket zu holen. Wenn man sich den grünen Laserstrahl, der den Nullmeridian darstellen soll, ansehen will, sollte man beachten, dass der Park zu Nachtzeiten geschlossen ist. Nach Sonnenuntergang hat er aber noch lange genug offen, wenn man bereits in der Nähe ist.

  • Der Greenwich Park liegt südlich der Marineakademie, zu Füßen des Observatoriums. Hier kann man entspannt schlendern und im Sommer wird überall Ball gespielt. Wenn man zur Sternwarte möchte, muss man durch den Park gehen und einen kleinen, aber relativ steilen Hügel erklimmen. Entlang des Weges gibt es allerdings überall Bänke zum Ausruhen und einmal oben angekommen, entschädigt die Aussicht über London für die vorherigen Strapazen.
