Weddings


Avington Park has all the grace and elegance of a fine country house, as you drive through the wrought iron gateway and down the long avenue of lime trees, the approach opens out onto well tended lawns. The grounds stretch as far as the eye can see and are beautifully sculpted around the lake and the River Itchen. The house stands in the beautiful secluded grounds, and yet is conveniently located 5 miles from the historic city of Winchester.

Guests can be greeted in the magnificently painted hall, where in winter, log fires will offer a warm welcome. In summer, extensive lawns provide a wonderful setting for a drinks reception before sitting down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast in the Library. The Library can hold 100 guests for a silver service wedding breakfast. Larger wedding parties may be accommodated in a marquee adjoining the library.

This beautiful and imposing family home has been granted a licence to hold civil wedding ceremonies, enabling the bride and bridegroom to enjoy their wedding and reception at the same idyllic venue. At Avington we only offer exclusive use, so it really is yours for the day.

If you would like a brochure and prices or if you wish to arrange to have a look round, please email enquiries@avingtonpark.co.uk or call us on 01962 779260.

Finding Avington Park was a dream come true. Beautiful hardly seems to do it justice but it’s stunning grounds and breathtaking interior ensured that our wedding was always going to be a fairytale, which it was and more.
