Avoid.
Winchester is a beautiful **city** (not a town - it was once the capital of
Wessex) but a little overdone with tourists. Salisbury has the edge in my
opinion (also a city) and has the tallest cathedral spire in England. I have
spent some very romantic days there! <sigh>
As far as Cornwall is concerned - take a slow stopping train, get off at a
small station and use a bike (the bigger towns have hire shops) - you can
take a bike on most trains with a reservation (depends on the local rail
operator - I have to admit that South Wales and West Rail can be a bit funny.
Connex (Kent, Surrey and Sussex) are much better - bikes for free at the
moment!).
Our rail service is much maligned. It is not that bad and is improving since
privatisation. A national timetable is bulky and expensive. Local timetables
are free and fit a large pocket. Do try to use express services.
