Discover centuries of history at The Vyne

The Vyne was built in the 16th century for Lord Sandys, Henry VIII´s Lord Chamberlain. The masterpiece of the building is the central staircase by John Chute, with its fluted columns, all decorated in blue and white. In the rooms is a wealth of old panelling and fine furniture. It also contains a Tudor chapel with Gothic vaulting, murals and fine Renaissance glass. In the grounds are lawns, herbaceous borders, lakes and an early summer house. The house is currently undergoing a major roof restoration, so make sure you check the website before setting off on a visit.

The Vyne also has a Garden:

Ten Places for a Perfect Weekend in Hampshire by Natalie French

"Marvel... King Henry VIII graced The Vyne with his regal presence on no less than three occasions. This stunning 16th century National Trust house is also home to a fearsome looking solid gold ring which wouldn’t look out of place around the neck of Golum! Dating back to the 4th or 5th century, the ring is said to carry a curse after it was stolen – and it is claimed that this provided the inspiration for Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. If that wasn’t enough name dropping, the beautiful grounds with ornamental lake, walled garden and ancient woodland also inspired the works of Jane Austin."

Hampshire's Best Sights by Ben Ward

"Hampshire is a county known to fly somewhat under the radar. Adjacent to Dorset with its beautiful beaches; and Sussex, which contains one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the whole of the UK in Brighton, some might think that Hampshire has nothing to offer. This article will beg to differ and begin to explore some of the best spots, sights and attractions that are an absolute must for anyone wishing to visit the county."
