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 our main 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 façade. 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!

Venues Booking Guide

Before you shoot off across the countryside cursing your satnav and it's tendency to become irate as it announces that it is 'recalculating' your route, have a think about the aspects that make your venue perfect.

Shortlist destinations with a view to visit your top three to confirm they can facilitate your requirements. If it helps take a piece of note paper with you so that you can remember the conversation.


The first aspect that you need to clarify is the size of the venue. Will they be able to accommodate your needs? Ask how many they will be able to comfortably seat for your meal. Extra seats and bumping elbows generally result in messy clothing and large dry cleaning bills. Remember that you will most likely be inviting extra guests to the evening reception and this will require extra space. Bands and DJs also tend to require quite a bit of room. Check that the venue can accommodate you, your guests, your entertainment and still have room for a dance floor.
