Winchester City centre provides a great range of shops, bars, restaurants and pubs as well as a busy mainline railway station (Southampton 16 min, Bournemouth 46 min, London Waterloo 1 hour 5 min) giving you easy access to everything the South Coast has to offer. And the glorious South Downs National Park is just on the doorstep.
We think Riverside Way is perfectly located for student life in Winchester. Located just a 12 minute walk away from the Winchester School of Art and under two miles from the University of Winchester Sparkford Road campus makes living here pretty convenient… (did we mention there’s a 24 hour supermarket just around the corner?)
