The magazine

Winchester Magazine was set up in January 2015 as the very first title to be dedicated entirecover low resly to the city.

All of our editorial is about Winchester – from its inspirational locals to its movers and shakers in business, the arts, music and sport.

The magazine also carries news about the city’s best restaurants, pubs and bars, previews of music and arts events, homes and interiors ideas, details of local specialists and tips on how to enjoy life in the city to the full.

Winchester Magazine has a print run of 8,500 copies and three seasonal issues a year as well as a thriving Facebook site with over 10,200 followers at www.facebook.com/winchestermag.

Our print run is the biggest of any Winchester print media. Our Facebook following is the biggest of any independently-owned print media in the county.

The quality of the magazine was recognised when we were named a finalist in The Winchester Business Excellence Awards. We received a Mayor of Winchester Award for service to the city during the pandemic and were honoured with a Point Of Light Award for our community-building social media campaigns by No 10 Downing Street in March 2021.

Meet the editor

After freelancing as a celebrity writer for Hello! and The Daily Express, Liz then edited several luxury lifestyle magazines including titles for Chewton Glen, Hotel du Vin and The Carnegie Club.

In January 2015, Liz fulfilled a lifetime dream to set up a magazine in the city in which she lived, which would not only champion all the brilliant things happening in Winchester, but which would also be aspirational and offer high quality content.

Liz volunteers for several city charities, knows the city inside out and enjoys evenings out at the theatre, live music in the open air, great food at Winchester’s many restaurants and family walks with Beans the dog in the countryside.
