Welcome to Hampshire’s party palace! Expect luxury, magnificence and complete exclusivity.
Avington commands a delicate balance of luxury and tranquillity. The dramatic state rooms, bursting with character, transport Avington’s guests to the opulent days of royalty past; the lavish accommodation grounding them in majestic modernity. Avington is quintessentially British, befitting of its royal history and riotous reputation. The estate boasts rolling green lawns, cattle, and expansive trees; the house sitting proudly as the focal point.
Avington has a rich history, tracing back as far as 961 AD, recorded in the Doomsday Book. Charles II is credited with Avington’s party reputation! Portraits of the Tudors and kings continue to adorn the walls of this incredible estate. After its occupation by the army during WWII, the Hickson family took on Avington and resided here until late 2020. Today, the parties still continue…
Avington’s dramatic entrance hall looks out onto the stunning West Lawn, home to their cattle and flock of sheep. Beyond this sits the lake, packed with wildlife, including the occasional swan. Running to the north of the estate is the captivating Itchen River, made crystal clear by its clay base. There is no denying that William Cobbett was right when he described Avington Park as ‘one of the prettiest places in the county’.
Avington is the perfect setting for a range of events; whether you are looking to host a product launch, extravagant company party, or a corporate retreat, we are on hand to assist. Avington’s event spaces can cater for intimate gatherings or large events up to 200 guests, and when utilising the outdoor space the possibilities are endless. Overnight there is accommodation for up to 44 (based on double occupancy). Avington is a dry hire venue and works a range of high end suppliers, ensuring that your event will be nothing short of exceptional.
A true country estate, Avington is able to host a range of activities for you and your guests; archery, axe throwing, clay pigeon shooting, wine tasting, and yoga form just a handful of the options available. Take a trip down the river in our rowing boats, or settle into the countryside as you sit down for a wilderness dinner on a warm summers evening. Alongside this, Avington Trout Fishery forms part of the Avington Estate and there is the possibility to incorporate some fishing into your schedule, or undertake a full fishing day as part of a retreat.
The estate is closely situated to Winchester; just an hour and a half from London, with close links to nearby rail stations and Southampton airport.
