An easy cache and dash close to Winchester railway station.
Winchester station was opened on 10th June 1839 by the London & South Western Railway on its mainline from London to Southampton. It opened as a temporary terminus for the line from Southampton until the through line was completed on 30th March 1840. Between 1949 and 1966 the station was named 'Winchester City' to avoid confusion with the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton Railway station named 'Winchester Cheesehill' (later 'Chesil') located to the East of the City.
The current station was renovated in 2004. South West Trains currently operate services from London Waterloo through Winchester to Portsmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth and Weymouth. Winchester is also on the cross country network.
