It is situated 68 miles south-west of London and 13.6 miles from Southampton, its other closest city. At the time of the 2001 Census, Winchester had a population of 41,420. Winchester developed from the Roman town of Venta Belgarum, which developed from an Iron Age oppidum. Winchester's major landmark is Winchester Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in Europe, with the distinction of having the longest nave and overall length of all Gothic cathedrals in Europe. The city is also home to the University of Winchester and Winchester College, the oldest public school in the United Kingdom.
