Winchester College Treasury

Access is via Porters' Lodge, Winchester College, College Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 9NA

The Winchester College Treasury houses the outstanding collections of art and archaeology belonging to the school. The converted medieval Warden’s Stables contain four galleries filled with objects from around the world.

The Warden’s Stables are part of a group of buildings that made up the service wing of the medieval College. Evidence from dendrochronology (tree ring dating) suggests that the building was begun in 1391 and completed a decade later. The stables were originally open to the roof: an upper floor, windows and a hayloft were added later. The building was used to stable horses until the early 20th century, when it became a store and games room for the boys living in College. Under the guidance of English Heritage, conversion of this unique Grade I listed building into our Treasury began in the spring of 2015 and took 15 months to complete. The buildings are now home to Winchester College’s extraordinary collections of art and archaeology.
