We are situated on Peninsula Barracks at the top end of the Winchester city centre. It’s a short walk up from the High Street, just past Winchester’s iconic Westgate and Great Hall. We are also within walking distance of Winchester train station (approximately 5 minutes).

Limited free parking is available to museum visitors located at the front of the museum. However, it is advised that you go to the front desk of the museum in order to pick up a  parking permit.
