The unique sound of a Tudor Lady Mass is just one of the new experiences we’re revealing at The Vyne in Hampshire this year. As this former Tudor ‘power house’ undergoes a £5.4 million roof project, we're shining a spotlight on untold stories from its intriguing past.
Take in sun-dappled bluebell woods and crystal-clear chalk streams. Hedges full of frothy hawthorn blossom and heaths alive with bird song. Spring has arrived so let our walking trails introduce you to some really memorable springtime experiences.
Spring is in full bloom across Hampshire and our gardens at Mottisfont, Hinton Ampner and The Vyne are awash with fresh pastel colours and delicious scents. Discover thousands of gold and yellow daffodils, borders of vivid tulips, and avenues of creamy camillias. Further afield our ancient woods reveal swathes of scented bluebells and our countryside landscapes are bustling with wildlife.
Our special places around Hampshire are bursting with family adventures. Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts introduce kids to nature-themed trails through spring gardens and sunlit woods, even an ancient mill. Lean about native birds and wildflowers, pick up den-building and Easter bunny skills, in return for a delicious chocolate reward. Every hop skip and jump you take with us helps care for spring wildlife.
Animals are emerging from hibernation across the 1,600 acres of woodland and tenanted farmland that make up the Mottisfont estate. Find out what species to look out for, and what work we do to help them thrive.
In spring the New Forest is a terrific place to spot birds and hear beautiful bird song. It’s breeding season, so follow our tips on how to protect ground-nesting birds as you look out for Dartford warblers and woodlarks.
From spring, Uppark’s famous Dolls’ House is the inspiration for an intimate display that explores this fascinating miniature world. We've got themed events too, with talks, tours, and children's activities.
14 January - 23 April 2017. This major exhibition explores the talents of the extraordinary artist, Rex Whistler, at the home of his last great artwork. Over seventy items are on display, from large oil paintings to sketchbooks, letters and personal items.
Dating back well over a thousand years City Mill has weathered the course of time. However, following recent flood damage, Winchester is at risk of losing one of its most historic properties. We need to raise £125,000 to carry out essential repairs or the Mill may have to close. This target is something that we can only achieve with your generous support.
Help your local National Trust places in Hampshire like Mottisfont, The Vyne or Winchester City Mill by joining your local supporter group. Some are more volunteering focused, and others enjoy social outings together like trips and tours, or lectures.
