Winchester’s Tudor and Stuart era is revealed in this beautifully refurbished listed monument, the last of the main medieval gates into the city.
A debtors’ prison for 150 years, visitors can see the walls covered in prisoners' graffiti. The museum houses a unique collection of weights and measures and a Tudor ceiling from Winchester College. There are great views across the city from the Westgate roof, and children can try on a suit of armour or make an authentic brass rubbing (small fee charged).
The Westgate Museum is operated and funded by Hampshire Cultural Trust.
