The Great Hall & Round Table
The 13th-century Great Hall is all that remains of Winchester Castle. The Purbeck stone columns, pointed arches and plate tracery windows reflect King Henry III's sophisticated tastes. Also inside is a grand symbol of medieval mythology, King Arthur's Round Table.
The Round Table was made in the 14th century and repainted by Henry VIII. However, over time it has almost become the mysterious table of the "Once and Future King", Arthur. The table is five metres in diameter and has King Arthur at the top with the names of the 24 knights written round the edge.
