U3A QUESTER 6 VISIT TO THE GREAT HALL, WINCHESTER, THURSDAY 24 MAY 2018
A Group off 11 enthusiastic members of Quester Group 6 met for a guided tour of Winchester’s historical Great Hall on Thursday 24 May 2018.
The visit proved to be both interesting and informative thanks largely to our excellent guide Lilly who showed enormous passion and enthusiasm in her presentation. The main points of interest were the history and origin of the building which contains the legendary King Arthur’s Round Table commissioned by Henry III, the medieval Queens Eleanor’s Garden and the famous trials which took place at The Assizes.
Following the visit, we all adjourned to Green’s Wine Bar for an excellent lunch. Many thanks to Pauline for organising the visit.
