Winnall is a northern suburb of Winchester, Hampshire, on the east bank of the River Itchen.

The name is presumed to derive from "Wilighealh", a Saxon name probably relating to willows, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as part of nearby Chilcomb. It appears in its modern spelling on a 1575 map by Saxton. Winnall was an ancient parish (incorporating that of Winchester St Giles by the late 13th century), but was absorbed by Winchester in 1902, after spending the years since 1835 as a civil parish within the ancient Borough of Winchester.
