Visitors can also see Queen Eleanor's garden, a recreation of an enclosed medieval garden, providing an injection of nature.

Came here to see the round table. Very quiet so had plenty of time to look round. Interesting facts all about the history of the hall. Visit the garden area?

King Arthur's round table. The stained glass windows. Worth a visit. Not expensive and very informative.

A must do whilst visiting, with a small admission fee to cover costs which is just about fair, as there isn't much to it. Nice, small garden.

We went on a particularly cold and windy day. It wasn't much warmer inside. There is the table of the Knights all round and up on the wall.

If you are in Winchester its well worth popping in if nothing else just to see queen Victoria the first of the darleks.

This hall, at the top of the hill and High Street, is worth visiting. Join a guided tour as it highlights the things you would miss.
The Hall is a grand building that houses the most important artefact of King Arthur Round table. Proven to be 12th century so not of Arthur time, it’s still nice to see this huge round table hung on the wall.
Upstairs there is a gallery of old photographs and prints which is well worth visiting,
