Winchester Palace

Winchester Palace

Hard to tell, but it’s a Palace. In its day, it made Buckingham Palace look like a shed. Built in the 13th Century for bishops to wine, dine and run a den of iniquity (where ladies of the night were called ‘Winchester Geese’ ) to make a few crown for the crown. Henry VIII tried to shut it down, but it resurfaced. Over the centuries, it’s also housed a brothel, prison, brewery, butchery, tennis courts & bowling alley.
