Cathedral Point is an ideal student accommodation in central Winchester for those who like to live in the heart of the city. Located just a 3 minute walk away from Winchester train station and under a mile from the High Street makes living in our student digs pretty convenient… Also, did we mention that a Tesco shop is located just a minute away from the property?
Winchester City Centre provides a great range of shops, bars, restaurants and pubs as well as a busy mainline railway station (Southampton 16 min, Bournemouth 46 min, London Waterloo 1 hour 5 min) meaning our central winchester student lets give you easy access to everything the South Coast has to offer. And the glorious South Downs National Parkis just on the doorstep of our student flats.
