We had booked this cab from Stansted to Winchester before our stay. We stayed for 7 nights. Easy to book, I had to change my flight time about a week before that was easy to do. Our flight was delayed (only by about 30 mins). As soon as we got to the airport I rang the emergency number to explain - The guys on the phone were helpful and said don't worry your driver is there. As soon as we got through the arrivals our driver was waiting, he was very pleasant & helpful! Great car - Little Mercedes, I get car sickness very bad and not once did I feel it with his driving, very relaxed and comfortable.
On our way to the hotel, he recommended many places to visit and what is good.
The driver was well educated. During the journey, the driver told me about the history of Winchester in which he said that Winchester , a town in Hampshire, was the capital of England from the Anglo-Saxon period until the 13th century.The ruins of a royal palace, many mediaeval monuments, and one of Europe's tallest cathedrals continue to testify to the legitimacy of England's political and cultural centre. Archaeology has revealed that the Celtic settlement of Caer Gwent, the "White City" - named after the surrounding hills - occupied the site from the Bronze Age.
Now one of the main tourist attractions in the area, the famous Winchester Cathedral was renovated several times in the 9th and 10th centuries and that is where William the Conqueror crowned himself.
At the top of the list of exciting opportunities to see this beautiful city is to visit a museum, look at historic buildings, enjoy one of the many festivals, and take part in a shopping trip. Winchester Cathedral — built on the site of the 7th-century Old Minster, whose foundations are still visible today — dates back to the 11th century and has been changed many times since then. This is one of the largest churches in Europe, and the highlights of the interior include the unique combination of Romanesque wall sections (1093) and the late-Gothic fan vaulting (1394) in its magnificent 12-bayed nave and transepts. Also noteworthy is its unique collection of bronze statues.
Beginning in 1635, these included statues of James I and Charles I. Other notable features include a magnificent 11th-century steel gate built by Pilgrim and the tombs of several Saxon kings, including Alfred the Great.16th-century murals adorn Lady Chapel, and 13th-century paintings on the chapel of the Guardian Angels provide examples of the original decoration. To the north of the ambulance is a Renaissance church adorned with a wooden chair where Mary Tudor (Mary Ogazini) sat during her marriage to Philip II of Spain in 1554.
Your service was perfect. Overall great experience.
