    • On-street parking is available for hotel guests only

      If you require parking please provide us with your car registration number by replying to this message

      This information is required ahead of arrival to issue a parking permit

      One permit per room for free on-street parking

      Permits are activated from 1500 on the day of check-in. Please ensure your departure by 12noon (midday) on the day of check-out to avoid a fine

      Due to the way the system is administered we cannot accommodate parking outside of this time frame, sorry

      We do not have a private car park. In addition to on-street parking we have two garages suitable for smaller vehicles, subject to availability on arrival

      Sat-nav postcode for parking: SO23 9HB for 8 Little Minster Street. This differs from our postal address, but brings you correctly to our rear entrance for parking

      On arrival stop at the rear of the Old Vine and come to the bar, where staff will assist

      You must then move your vehicle to S-Zone parking bays, marked in blue on the map supplied at check-in (bays are marked out on the road with white lines)

      The majority of guests park in these bays with no issues, however spaces cannot be reserved and therefore parking cannot be guaranteed. If you have difficulty please ask for help, as we are familiar with the designated parking areas

      Parking on yellow lines risks a penalty charge (except on Sundays, when parking on single yellows is permitted)

      The closest off-street car park is Tower Street long-stay (SO23 8TA)

    • A ramp is available to enable wheelchair access through the restaurant door. Please ask a member of staff for assistance. Please note that only the main restaurant and bar are accessible to wheelchairs, and that the hotel, courtyard room and public toilets can only be reached through a set of steps where a ramp is not feasible.

    • The Old Vine is situated opposite Winchester Cathedral green and the City Museum, in an area known as the Square, a short stroll from the High Street.

      By Train

      Winchester is one hour’s travel from London Waterloo. Winchester is also within easy reach by rail of Woking, Basingstoke, Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth. For timetable information call National Rail on +44 (0)8457 48 49 50.

      By Road

      Arriving on the M3, come off at J11. Follow the signs for St Cross and the city centre. This will bring you along St Cross Road. As you come into Winchester, look out for the Green Man pub on the right-hand side. Turn right into St Swithun Street, and at the bottom of the road turn left into Symonds Street. At the fork at the end of the road, take the left-hand exit into Little Minster Street. Guests are advised not to use J9 if coming from the north, as navigation through Winchester city centre is difficult if you are unfamiliar with the area.
