It was gifted to the Bishop of Winchester by the reigning King. It was used as a priory for the monks of Saint Swithun, before being acquired by King Henry VIII for use by the Royal Court. Portraits of the Tudors and Kings still hang on the walls of this incredible estate. The estate was then passed through multiple royals, including King Charles II after his return from exile. It was saved after its occupation by the army during WWII by the Hickson family, who remained in residence until the property was sold in November 2020. Today the parties still continue!

An Unforgettable Wedding Day
A stunning, exceptional wedding venue. We got married here on 28 August with our closest friends and family. Avington were fantastic from the planning stage all the way through to the day itself. Alice in particular was fantastic, from helping us plan the details of the big day through to helping us fill confetti on the day itself. Thank you so much Alice and Avington for ensuring we had an unforgettable wedding day x

On a personal note Alice, you were absolutely fantastic and you were very much part of my team. I could feel that you cared and wanted to make it work as much as I did. You and the team were flawless and we can't thank you enough.

Wow! What a weekend! It really was a dream come true to have our celebrations at Avington - rain and all! I don’t underestimate the time and energy that goes into making these events happen. Avington looked absolutely stunning and I keep re-looking at the photos and thinking to myself, "Did it really look like that?!". Thank you again for all your support and guidance throughout the weekend and lead up. I'd really like to do it all over again now!
