About Avington Park

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. Larger wedding parties may be accommodated in a marquee adjoining the library.

This glorious venue provides unique opportunities for photographs both inside and out – a photographer’s dream!

Testimonials

“The venue was absolutely beautiful with a superb ambience for the wedding” I am writing to thank you and your staff for the professional and exceptional service provided to us at my daughter’s wedding last Saturday – everything was perfect! I would also like to convey special thanks to John who was absolutely outstanding throughout the evening in helping us to enjoy such a special occasion.

Andrea and Mark – June 2015

“Incredible wedding venue” Planning our wedding over 16 months would have been much more stressfull and difficult if ir hadn’t been for the great job Avington did of hosting our wedding. The day went perfectly and I would like to say a massive thankyou to John (Master of Ceremonies) who is an absolutely amazing addition to the staff. He judged the relaxed attitudes of our guests perfectly and felt like part of the instead of an outsider. He made such an impression he was also referenced in the Best Man’s speech! We will be looking for an excuse to book another event here in the future.

On Tripadvisor March 2015

It is difficult to summarise in a few sentences how thankful we are to all of you for making our wedding day run so seamlessly. All our guests enjoyed being at Avington. We had an incredible day which was very relaxed and ran smoothly. We will have very fond memories and Avington provided the perfect surroundings.

Tahira and Barrie – June 2014

We have fantastic memories of a very happy day that went all too fast. Avington played a key part in bringing it all together and I thank you for allowing us to use your house and all your help in making that happen.

James – May 2014

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all you have done over the last 6 months. It seems a lifetime ago you gave us the first tour of your beautiful family home, which we fell in love with instantly! The day went perfectly. We will absolutely be recommending your venue to our friends who are planning a big event and will be looking for an excuse to book ourselves in the future.

Ross and Becky – April 2014

My eldest son had his wedding here on Saturday and it was fantastic. The setting is superb: Georgian House, river running through the grounds and a lake set against the rolling Hampshire countryside. Staff were incredibly helpful and ensured that the House was ready and perfect in everyway, can’t fault the preparation of the house and grounds.

Paul M – April 2014

On behalf of Ian and all our guest I would like to say a very big thank you to all for everything you did for us not only on the day of the wedding but before and the following day as we were privileged to also be able to stay in the apartment for our wedding night, what a great place to wake up the next morning.
