IOW Tours have a splendid day trip for you this October as we GoWightaway to Winchester Farmers Market and Houghton Lodge. 

Famous for being featured by Rick Stein’s programme, Winchester Farmers Market can claim to be one of the largest markets in the country. Held in the heart of this historic cathedral city, with over 80 producers. Stroll around the huge range of stalls sampling some of the best produce Hampshire has to offer, plus for the gardening enthusiast there are a range of plants, shrubs and trees.

Houghton Lodge Gardens has been described by visitors as ‘The Jewel of the Test Valley’ and ‘A Stately Pleasure-Dome on the most romantic river in England’.

Some people visit for it’s architecture, some for its literary connections and some for it’s gardens; but everybody leaves with a sense of its ageless tranquillity, and special magic. It is little wonder that Country Life readers voted it in such high numbers for their search for ‘England’s Favourite Country House’
