Winchester Palace is a an early 13th century palace built for the Bishops of Winchester in Southwark.

The palace was used until the 17th century, when it was converted into accommodation for tenements and warehouses until a fire destroyed most of the Palace in 1814.

Many notable figures in history were entertained at the palace, including King James I of Scotland in 1424 when he married Joan Beaufort.

Today, only the foundations and ruins of the Great Hall survive with an impressive rose window.
