Rainy Winchester Weekend

Winchester is always a treat for a weekend visit, even if it pours with rain.  Our foul weather saviour this time was Intech.  It was a mass of slightly soggy families all messing around with various interactive science experiments.

Tom learned that we look hot when we kiss.

And Bryony learned that its always possible to find a way to shift the conversation to bicycles.

A restorative lunch at the Bridge Patisserie.  A perfect little nutshell of a cafe.  Sencha Sakura tea turned out to be  a delicious discovery.  Pear and blackcurrant frangipane is a perfect lady’s lunch for a rainy day. The goats cheese quiche is tasty enough to deserve a better salad.  Either way, this place gives us business-envy.

A wander back through Winchester Cathedral Close and a stop off at the bookshop under the arches, opposite a Barbara Hepworth sculpture.  This place is so excessively picturesque it’s quite ridiculous. With this little place on top of Oxfam bookshop and P&G’s, Winchester is a great place to spend an hour book browsing.

After the rain.

Peeking over the wall at allotments has become all the more fun since finding out we are getting our own.

Bryony and Tom
