About

‘One of the prettiest places in the county.’ -William Corbett

The Setting

Avington is a privately owned stately home in Hampshire, set in 150 acres of historic parkland bordering the River Itchen. Located just east of Winchester, the home sits nestled in the heart of the Itchen Valley.

The pillared entrance with wrought iron gates makes for a grand arrival as your guests make their way down the lime tree avenue. The house and parkland offer a fantastic backdrop for wedding photos, with an impressive portico, and three statues sat looking over the grounds. The lawns located next to the River Itchen provide a picturesque scene for welcome drinks before your reception in the house.

The Vibe

The backdrop of Avington is befitting royalty, so it is no surprise that King Charles II called this place home. With his mistress Nell Gwynn, Avington became the heart of her prestigious party palace, in which the royal court attended.

The venue provides a choice of rooms to host your ceremony, the Ballroom being the most spectacular with gilt plaster work, hand-painted masterpieces and vast windows overlooking the rolling parkland. The south-facing Orangery makes the perfect reception space able to accommodate larger groups. The Library provides a one of a kind setting for your dancefloor, allowing guests to celebrate into the evening. When the party is over be a guest at Avington and stay in one of their stately suites or cosy cottages.

Couples can enjoy exclusive use of Avington Park, ensuring a completely private celebration. The team have carefully selected a fine choice of caterers so the day can be tailored to you. Couples can liaise with their onsite Wedding Coordinator who will assist you in ensuring you have the right contacts to make your day perfect.

If it is a wedding or private event, indulge in the exclusive use of this luxury Hampshire home and continue the historic tradition of parties here at Avington.
