Saint Swithun is the saint most associated with Winchester. http://winchester-cathedral.org.uk/history-treasures/famous-people/st-swithun-the-cathedral%e2%80%99s-patron-saint/
This beautiful cathedral, even on a dull cloudy November day has a light the shines within that is more than the sum of its treasures. There are many stories, tales and interesting facts illuminated by the many experienced guides who share their knowledge with fascinating narratives. A community as thriving in its humanity as a school, rich in the diversity of the visitors and locals who frequent it. Recommended a worthwhile visit, to sit and meditate, people watch, learn of our English and European heritage, listen to the choir or simply to give thanks in prayer. The Bible is a remarkable testament to devotion and duty – its artwork is still fresh and vibrant.
The cafe round the front evokes a similar atmosphere. Their hot chocolate was excellent. 🙂
