Avington Park

Avington Park is a privately-owned stately home in Hampshire, located five miles from the historic city of Winchester and 17 miles from Southampton.

This beautiful family home is set in its own parkland bordering the River Itchen. It was once described by William Cobbett as “one of the prettiest places in the county”. 

The estate is first mentioned in the Domesday Book and has been altered in intervening years.  Having played host to Charles II and George IV, the House boasts wonderful rooms, the beautifully painted Main Hall, the Library overlooking the south lawns, the old Dining Room and the Ballroom upstairs, with magnificent gold plasterwork ceiling and painted panels - yet Avington retains the atmosphere and warmth of a family home.

To commemorate the voyage, Avington Park has put together a selection of very special tours.   Guests will be amazed by the grandeur of the gilded state rooms, its history and fantastic views. Included in the tour will be a visit to St Mary’s Church, a Georgian church situated within the grounds which is on the Pilgrims Way.  We can also offer the option of a barrel organ recital (in excellent condition) in the church.

Group organisers have the flexibility of booking an exclusive guided tour of Avington Park followed by refreshments in the Tea Bar, or hiring Avington Park for a private reception, lunch or dinner.
