Winchester is a local government district in Hampshire, England, with city status. It covers an area of central Hampshire including the city of Winchester itself, and neighbouring towns and villages including New Alresford, Colden Common and Bishops Waltham.

The current city boundaries were set on April 1, 1974 when the City of Winchester merged with Droxford Rural District and part of Winchester Rural District.

As it is technically a city it is the second biggest city in England, surprassed only by Carlisle.
