Winchester Association

Winchester City Mill

The Winchester Association of National Trust Members arranges talks on the first Wednesday of each winter month (free to our Members), and day outings to houses and gardens throughout the year, all of which are publicised in our regular Newsletters.

We also run two holidays each year, travelling from Winchester to a base from where we visit private and National Trust buildings, churches, cathedrals and gardens.

In addition, we hold 3 social events – a Spring Lunch, a summer party at a local National Trust location, and a Christmas lunch. 

We particularly support the National Trust locations in and around Winchester: the Winchester City Mill, Mottisfont Abbey, and Hinton Ampner.

OUR 2019/20 PROGRAMME (October 2019 to April 2020)

Talks are held at Guildhall, Winchester, at 2.30pm. Non-members are welcome for a payment of £10.
