We love to visit Winchester and it is always a delight to see Alfred's statue standing straight and true as reminder of Winchester's part in English History.

Well preserved statue in a good part of the city. Winchester is steeped with so much history and culture and would certainly recommend tourist to put this on their bucket list of places to visit.

The statue of King Alfred the Great is located in the middle of Broadway road in Winchester and you can not really miss it. Wonderful and majestic.

beautiful statue. In a good position and interesting detail. In the town, very prominent position. If you are interested in history. Take a look.

The only King to be given the additional title of The Great' stands proudly looking over his capital. Meet your date there or landmark your visit around this fine city but this is one to put on the list of things to see

Impressive statue in the middle of the main street, detailed and well sculpted. Another piece of history in a place that is full of it.

Great to see the one who burnt the cakes in Winchester. Good area by the river just further on. Have fun.

We came upon Alfred during our walk around the village of Winchester, I believe we were whistling the Winchester Cathedral tune! The statue is inspiring, standing tall and proud in the middle of main street.

Nice to see him standing tall and proud at the centre of his Saxon capital. Difficult to photograph in full sun
