Avington Park is a private home which lends itself for a variety of corporate functions as well as the most spectacular parties. It was transformed in the late 17C for Charles II to come and stay, and therefore the rooms were laid out for entertainment. Please browse through the rest of the website to see what Avington can offer.
From the grandest wedding to a small intimate gathering, Avington Park provides a stunning setting for your wedding or reception. 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.
Approach through wrought iron gates, down the lime tree avenue alongside the River Itchen and sweep round to the elegant fa�ade. Guests may 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 175 guests for a drinks reception or 100 for a silver service wedding breakfast; for larger wedding parties a marquee may be used adjoining the library. This glorious venue provides unique opportunities for photographs both inside and out - a photographer's dream!
