hampshire’s historic party palace

Welcome to Avington Park

Avington is a beautiful, family-owned private estate just east of Winchester. Set in its own private parkland of 150 acres, along the banks of the River Itchen, for centuries Avington has served as a playground to both Kings and Royal Courtiers.

Avington’s rich grounds and opulent house are clearly fit for royalty and, for many years, hosted King Charles II with his most famous mistress, Nell Gwynn. During this time, Avington became a prestigious party palace that sat at the heart of the Royal Court.

Some four centuries later the love of lavish parties continues. Whether it is a wedding or a private event, indulge in the exclusive use of the estate and continue the historic tradition of parties here at Avington.
