Steep steps to the top of hill are really worth to take. There is a platform available for you to get view towards the city centre. Don't forget to enjoy the nature and take a deep breath during hiking.

Discovered this little gem after living here for 3 years! Steep steps, but you can get around it by going up via the various slopes instead. Quiet, serene, with friendly people around. Near trails for the South Downs

St Giles Hill overlooking the City of Winchester. The views are very good and the park itself is of the tourist route so is peaceful and relaxing. A nice spot to relax and take in the views.

Love visiting St Giles Hill Viewpoint, where you are able to look out across Winchester. Spot the important sites from above. It is a very steep walk up but once you are there it is very pretty, a perfect place to bask in the sun...More

There are houses at the top side of the park. I suggest look at Google maps as there must be parking along the roads nearby.
