Sightseeing
Houghton Lodge Gardens has been described by recent visitors as ‘the jewel of the Test Valley’, and ‘A Stately Pleasure-Dome on the most romantic river in England’. It has been the home of the Busk family for more than a century, and still is. It provides a perfect setting for corporate entertaining and romantic weddings. Some people visit Houghton for its architecture, some for its literary connections and some for its gardens; but everyone leaves with a sense of its ageless tranquillity and special magic. It is little wonder that Country Life readers voted it in such numbers for their search for ‘England’s Favourite Country House’. Adults £7.50 Children 3+ £3.50 Children 0-3 FREE Food & Drink We have tearooms where you can purchase food and drink. Further information can be found by clicking here. You are welcome to drop in and enjoy refreshments without purchasing an entry into the gardens. Cyclists We welcome visits from cyclists Dogs Dogs are welcome on short leads. Parking There is plenty of free car parking at Houghton Lodge Gardens. Shop A few items of selected gift ware are available to purchase from our shop. How To Find Us Houghton Lodge is in the heart of the Test Valley, only an hour and a half from Central London, a simple and usually fast journey straight down the M3 and the A30. We are five minutes from the local town of Stockbridge. Follow the signs to Houghton Lodge Gardens. Winchester and Andover are our nearest mainline stations (to/from London, Waterloo). Houghton Lodge has half a mile on one of the main carriers of The River Test. We take pride in trying to provide some of the best fishing this beautiful river can offer and maintain stocks to a very high level. The beat has its own fishing huts and private car parking. It is beautifully kept, with good casting and little obstruction. The fishing is mainly brown trout with some grayling and occasional rainbow trout; fishermen may keep a brace of fish if they require. We can provide fishing hampers or on the bank catering. With twin bed accommodation available onsite, it makes the ideal break for a father and son. We have a great pub, The Boot Inn, within walking distance. Guides and private tuition are also available.

Fisherman’s lunch Baskets Choose one of our gourmet house baskets. Baskets must be paid for at the time of booking and will be delivered to the fishing hut on the day.

Mottisfont Abbey is a historical priory and country estate in Hampshire, England. Sheltered in the valley of the River Test, the property is now operated by the National Trust. A romantic house and gallery set in beautiful riverside gardens Ancient trees, bubbling brooks and rolling lawns frame this 18th-century house with a medieval priory at its heart. Maud Russell made Mottisfont her home in the 1930s, bringing artists here to relax and create works inspired by Mottisfont’s past, including an extraordinary drawing-room painted by Rex Whistler. We continue those artistic traditions today, with a permanent 20th-century art collection and major exhibitions in our top-floor gallery. Outside, carpets of spring bulbs, a stunning walled rose garden, rich autumn leaves and a colourful winter garden make Mottisfont a feast for the senses all year round. Our world-famous collection of old-fashioned roses flowers once a year in June. Winding paths meander through stately trees, with the sound of water never far away. There’s space to run, jump and play, and always something for families to do. We also look after 1600 acres of woodland and tenanted farmland in the local area, including Stockbridge Down and Marsh, and Curbridge Nature Reserve. Our wider estate is a wonderful place to explore, take a relaxing walk and take in the sights of some of Hampshire's most glorious countryside.

It's a great place for a day out whether you're a keen gardener, seasoned horticulturalist or you're visiting Hampshire and want to explore this hidden gem. The Water Gardens covers around seven acres and was originally created by the Beddington family during the early 1900's. The water gardens became part of the estate in 1942 and since then the gardens have been nurtured and developed to become the finest, famous water gardens. John Spedan Lewis spent much of his later life in these gardens and whilst the gardens remain true to this time, our philosophy is to evolve the landscape so that it remains a vibrant, tranquil and beautiful place to visit. The water remains crystal clear, connecting the two islands and woodland valleys; Longstock and Leckford together.

They love to climb the fantastic tree house, jump across the wobbly bridge, weave through the bamboo tunnels, swing on the super snake swing and test their climbing and balancing skills on the Hilltop Adventures mini ‘assault loop’.

Broadlands is an English country house, located in the civil parish of Romsey Extra, near the town of Romsey in the Test Valley district of Hampshire, England.

Experience the Golden Age of steam travel on our heritage railway in Hampshire. A great day out for families and enthusiasts alike. We are the Mid Hants Railway, affectionately known as the ‘Watercress Line’ due to the involvement of the railway in transporting watercress from the beds in Alresford up to London and the Midlands, between the 1890s and 1960s.The railway line between Alton and Winchester was closed by British Railways in 1973, but part of it was saved from extinction by a band of enthusiastic volunteers. They initially raised enough money to re-open the line as a heritage railway from Alresford to Ropley in 1977 and continued to raise funds to relay the track to Medstead & Four Marks and then to join up with the main railway network at Alton in 1985. Today the railway runs the full 10 miles between the market towns of Alresford and Alton, preserving an important piece of our 1940’s – 70’s railway heritage for this generation and many more to follow.

Calshot beach forms part of a mile long shingle spit which reaches out into the mouth of Southampton Water. From here you get a great view of the ships coming and going from one of the UK's largest ports. The beach also offers panoramic views of the Solent, Southampton and the Isle of Wight so it is little wonder the beach is the site of a 16th century castle. Built in 1539 by Henry VIII, Calshot Castle is one of number of similar forts built to defend the south coast from the French and Spanish. Calshot beach is home to one of the UK's biggest outdoor and watersport centres. The Calshot Activities Centre offers a range of activities including windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and climbing. The centre is located in a hangar which was built to house the flying boats of the Calshot Naval Air Station. On the other side of the spit is an extensive salt marsh which is home to a wealth of birds and other wildlife. Calshot is often cited as being a nudist / naturist beach. Whilst we can find references to this from a few years back it seems the owners of the beach (Manor of Cadland) very much frown upon this and have threatened to take legal action against anyone going the full monty.

Welcome to Highclere Castle ...or, as many of you know it, 'Downton Abbey'! Highclere Castle is a country house built in the Jacobethan style by the architect Charles Barry in the 19th century, with a park designed by Capability Brown in the 18th century. The 5,000-acre estate is in Hampshire, England, about 5 miles south of Newbury, Berkshire. The history of planes begins at Highclere Castle in 1910, with Sir Geoffrey De Havilland making his first flight on the Highclere Estate at Seven Barrows. ABOUT THE CASTLE Highclere Castle has a rich, multi-faceted heritage. The first written records of the estate date back to 749 when an Anglo-Saxon King granted the estate to the Bishops of Winchester. Bishop William of Wykeham built a beautiful medieval palace and gardens on the park. Later on, the palace was rebuilt as Highclere Place House in 1679 when it was purchased by Sir Robert Sawyer, Attorney General to Charles II and James II and direct grandfather of the current Earl. In 1771, 'Capability' Brown made plans for the alteration of the grounds, water and symmetrical Georgian house at Highclere for the 1st Earl of Carnarvon. More > In 1842, Sir Charles Barry – who was also working on the Houses of Parliament at the time – finished his final designs for the 3rd Earl of Carnarvon, transforming Highclere Place House into Highclere Castle. More > The Countess’ research has revealed that, in 1867, the Constitution of Canada was drawn up in the British North America Act by 4th Earl of Carnarvon and John A. Macdonald, later the first Prime Minister of Canada. More > The history of planes begins at Highclere Castle in 1910, with Sir Geoffrey De Havilland making his first flight on the Highclere Estate at Seven Barrows.

More > During the First World War, Highclere Castle was converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers run by the 5th Countess of Carnarvon. More > Throughout the Second World War, Highclere Castle was home to evacuees, whose names you can see etched into the roof lead. During the conflict, military planes from four nations crashed on the Highclere Estate whilst on active service. More > The current Earl’s father, the 7th Earl of Carnarvon, was the Queen’s racing manager from 1969 until his death in 2001. In 1988, Highclere Castle first opened its doors to the public.

In the 5th century this waterside fortress was transformed into a Saxon settlement, and after the Conquest of 1066 it became a Norman castle. For medieval kings it was an important embarkation point for crossing the Channel. From 1665 Portchester served as a prisoner-of-war camp – a role that reached its height during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars of 1793–1815, when it housed up to 8,000 prisoners, of many nationalities and backgrounds, at any one time. Key facts about Portchester Castle Portchester’s commanding location within Portsmouth harbour has made it a major factor in the defence of the Solent for centuries. Portchester is the best-preserved Roman fort in northern Europe – the only one whose entire defensive circuit survives little altered from when it was built. After the Norman Conquest the Roman walls became the outer defences of a great castle, its main buildings set within one corner of the Roman fort. Surviving medieval buildings include the magnificent Norman keep and an impressive royal palace built in the 1390s for Richard II. Medieval kings used Portchester to gather their forces before crossing the Channel – most famously, it was from here that in 1415 Henry V launched the invasion of France that culminated in his triumph at Agincourt. Portchester’s role as a depot for prisoners of war saw it house 2,500 black and mixed-race prisoners from the Caribbean in 1796–7, as well as a group of French prisoners who set up a theatre in the keep in 1810.
