Winchester Palace


Open Year Round


Grade II*

English Heritage

Winchester Palace, the London residence of the Bishop of Winchester, is located between the Golden Hinde and Southwark Cathedral.

Built in the early 13th century, the palace was one of the largest buildings in medieval London. During the 18th century it was divided into tenements and warehouses, most of which were destroyed by fire in the early 19th century.

Part of the walls of the Great Hall, with a rose window in the west gable, are all that remain today. They, and the medieval-style garden planted within them, can be viewed from Clink St.
