The Grange Hampshire

Near Winchester

Sports Stadium

Although The Grange Hampshire has a magical set of ingredients for you to work with  - including specifically designed creative meeting spaces, a neo-classical mansion (with distressed interiors) hidden in its own valley, a 570 seat auditorium, water meadows, woods and wide open spaces -  its’ biggest asset is having a team that really understands what it takes to deliver extra-ordinary experiences. 


For additional adventure we can weave in some energising singing while making a contribution to the education programme of the The Grange Festival and for the foodies we can give you an insight into growing English Sparkling Wine or finding truffles. We guarantee superb, generous, locally sourced food. We can tailor experiences to suit your budget - whether an excellent picnic and a stunning walk around the Park, a presentation in the auditorium, a delicious lunch for 500 or team games on the terraces we have - we’ll be honest if we don’t think we can do a good enough job for the money.
