This tour focuses on Winchester’s Jewish community in the Medieval period. You will walk up the north side of the Cathedral before crossing the High Street to St Peter’s Street and Jewry Street, once the main area of Jewish population. During the 1200s, some members of the Winchester community were very wealthy and powerful. You will hear about Licoricia and her family and their dealings with royalty. The tour will enter the Great Hall and the site of the old castle and learn about the politics and prejudice that led to the expulsion of the community in 1290.
