I always arrange to meet family and friends at the statue as it is easy to see on entry to Winchester. It is surprising how many people do not know the story behind his reign. There are always visitors taking photos of this impressive statue....More

I was in Winchester for a couple of hours, and 1 of the 1st things you see as you come over the bridge into the High Street, is this Statue of King Alfred. This really is a Great Statue.

The legend of King Alfred is fundamental to Winchester, but this statue between the town hall and a bus station is not the best way to appreciate his achievements in beating the Viking invasions!
