Winchelsea has more medieval cellars than anywhere else in England, apart from Norwich and Southampton. There are 56 known medieval cellars (and a few post-medieval), although only 33 are currently accessible. All date from the late 13th century and most were built to service the wine trade with Gascony. The cellars are only open to the public during these tours, which explain how and why the cellars were built, set against the dramatic historical background of medieval Winchelsea.  For more information and booking visit the Winchelsea website. £5 per person.
