A very pleasant surprise awaits at Victoria House. This historic Grade II listed building is nestled on the edge of Royal Victoria Country Park in Hamble which boasts beautiful views and extensive grounds.
Victoria House was linked to the main Royal Victoria Hospital in the Crimean war where the house formed a pivotal part of the hospital after the injured soldiers who returned form the war. The house was built in 1866 and remains virtually unchanged to this day.
In 1980 the Police bought the site and turned it into the Police training school. During the refurbishment of Victoria House, extensive works were carried out to renovate and bringing the building back to its formal glory.
We are very lucky to work in this historic and stunning location where you will see wildlife such as deer, countless varieties of birds, beautiful trees and extensive grounds. Don’t be surprised whilst on your visit you will see our family of deer that live within the grounds and neighbouring park.
The Victoria Room
The largest of the rooms that Victoria House has to offer, here we are able to seat up to 120 guests for a ceremony, 250 seated for a wedding breakfast and for an evening reception we are able to accommodate up to 340 guests.
Sir John Hoddinott Room
The Sir John Hoddinott Room, named after a very popular Hampshire Constabulary Chief Constable, is a very popular choice from previous weddings because of its layout. The same as a theatre, you will walk down into the room and your guests will be seated in tiers so all will be able to view your ceremony. Air conditioned for those hot summer months too.
The Duke Room
Situated at the back of the house, the Duke Room has the delightful view of the grounds but the feel of intimacy as guest numbers are restricted to a maximum of 50.
The Hamble Room
The Hamble Room sits to the side of the building but still benefits from the beautiful gardens that can be seen from its windows, this room will seat 45.
The Florence Gazebo
The best saved till last, the Florence Gazebo, named after Florence Nightingale, because of her links to Victoria House, has the most beautiful surroundings. In the grounds of Victoria House you will be seated next to the large oak tree that will shelter you and your guests whilst your ceremony takes place. This area is licenced to hold 6 guests within the structure but you will be able to have up to 46 attending guests to witness your marriage.
