Little Minster Street is a quaint and peaceful side street within just a few steps of the pedestrianised high street and thriving city centre. The charming surrounding area contains a variety of exquisite period homes entwined with modern and interesting residential properties. The high street and cathedral square contain a diverse collection of local businesses, independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars, and restaurants. There are several other cultural, historical and leisure facilities such as the Theatre Royal, Everyman Cinema, the Great Hall and world-renowned Cathedral.

The mainline railway station is half a mile away.

Kings Head Yard is ideally located for the city, but also allows attractive walks through historic cathedral streets and out to water meadows, St Catherine's Hill and onto the Itchen Navigation path.
