Bishop's Waltham - a lovely place to live and work.....
With a foot in the South Downs National Park and located at the mid point of a long-established route between Winchester and Portsmouth, Bishop’s Waltham has long been a place to stop and relax.
From the impressive ruins of the medieval Bishop of Winchester’s Palace to the numerous listed buildings of the town centre, history is everywhere. The medieval high street is remarkably well preserved with an excellent range of shops, cafés, restaurants and salons.
Shopping and eating is complemented by miles of walking and cycling trails. Visitors can choose from wandering through nature reserves, meandering along riversides and discovering the former Meon Valley railway line.
The friendliness of Bishop’s Waltham combined with its strong sense of community has resulted in a calendar bursting with events. From the annual yarn bombing to its vibrant summer carnival, vintage markets and the annual Christmas Fayre, there are many reasons to Love Bishop’s Waltham!
