About

Once one of England’s most thriving ports, now landlocked, Winchelsea was planned as a medieval new town, set on a hill and constructed in a chequer pattern with hidden vaults beneath. Today there’s a sense of calm, order and quietness preserved in its streets and buildings, and of intrigue when touring its labyrinth of underground cellars.
