Shopping at Winchester City Mill

Spring 2019 retail collection

Located within the historic city of Winchester, just a short stroll from the Cathedral, is Winchester City Mill and gift shop. Situated in the Mill’s old stable, our charming shop is the perfect place to find that special gift. Stocked with an array of edible treats, gifts and seasonal National Trust ranges, we like to spoil you with choice. Every purchase you make goes back into looking after special places for ever, for everyone.

Seasonal products

Our stock changes seasonally to reflect the shifting landscape and time of year. Our items are inspired by the special places that we look after and designs are influenced by the natural environment. Inspired by meadows and species-rich grasslands, the grasslands collection embraces the nature of shared spaces available to everyone and everything. These spaces are classrooms for future generations to appreciate the importance of the environment and also to uncover stories of historical significance. They are places to stop and to think, to re-energise and to inspire. From the restored meadows at Llanerchaeron; now full of life and colour, to the historically significant Runnymede; a bustling habitat for flora and fauna, the Grasslands collection highlights the importance of meadows whilst also encouraging us to come together in these local and ever-meaningful spaces.

Embrace the Great British weather; whether further afield or in your own garden. Find rugs, rucksacks and walking essentials for your next beach picnic, National Trust property trail or family day out. As well as stylish, yet practical, tools and essentials, bird feeders, sculptures and outdoor lighting.
