Winchester is a jewel of a city in the south of the UK. Routinely voted the happiest city in the UK, it’s a truly stunning place to visit and a luxurious place to live. Running deep with history, including Arthurian legend (King Arthur’s round table itself can be found here), and featuring prominently in 19th century literary works by classic authors like Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy, Winchester is packed with things to see and do.
There are many reasons why Winchester so commonly tops lists of the happiest UK cities, but we reckon a big part of that is its dog friendly attitude. There are plenty of places to eat and drink that are dog friendly. Just take a look around our guide for pubs, cafes, restaurants, bars and more.
