Directions to the Pilgrims’ School

To the School from the North

From the M3
The easiest route is to ignore the Winchester turning at Junction 9 and to continue on to Junction 11. From there,  follow the directions below, as if you were arriving from the south. This avoids the city centre and the rather confusing one way system.

From the A34

At a large roundabout  where it meets  the M3 (Junction 9), do not follow the signs for Winchester, but instead follow signs for Winnall, with Tesco supermarket on your left. Continue down the hill until you merge with the city's one-way system. Turn left here, and then immediately move to the right hand lane to turn right, signposted to the city centre. This one way road then weaves through the city centre until it climbs a brief hill which ends with a T junction and traffic lights. Turn left here, and then left again at the next set of traffic lights. This is Southgate Street. Continue for half a mile. At the Green Man pub, opposite the Screen cinema, turn left down St Swithun’s Street. Continue straight ahead and through the Cathedral Gate. The school is on your right, with limited parking in front of it.

To the School from the South

Come off the M3 at Junction 11. Go across the first small roundabout and turn right at the second roundabout, following signs for the city centre and St Cross. Just under 2 miles after leaving the motorway, you will reach the Screen Cinema on your left. Turn right opposite the cinema, by the Green Man pub, and drive down St Swithun’s Street. Continue straight ahead where the road narrows and drive through the decorative Cathedral Gate. The school is on your right, with limited parking in front of it.


Directions to the Pilgrims’ School for matches

We are delighted for parents and friends to attend matches. Please do not park in the Cathedral Close. If the school car park on Wharf Hill is full, you are advised to avoid the wrath of the traffic wardens  and to use one of the  city centre car parks, a very short walk from the school. Alternatively, you may prefer to use the excellent park and ride facilities, of which there are two, with frequent shuttle buses to the city centre, under 5 minutes walk from the school.

If using a SatNav, please input  SO23 9NB as the postcode which will take you to the pitches.

Live city centre parking information can be found on the Park Winchester app available for free from itunes.
