Things to see and do

Bluebells flourish in Morgaston Woods.

Bluebells at The Vyne 

From mid-April, you can lose yourself amongst these enchanting blooms and become a part of their survival story. Deep in Morgaston Woods, a network of paths weave through the swathes of hazy blue that carpet the woodland floor.

The Vyne's Victorian bridge

Photo appeal for the Fallen Bridge 

Help us build a more comprehensive visual history of The Vyne's Fallen Bridge. We are keen to hear from visitors who remember this landmark before it collapsed in 1986. We’d love to hear about your memories of the bridge and see any photos you may have at thevyne@nationaltrust.org.uk.

What refreshments are available?

As of 17 May, the café can serve a hot and cold lunch menu with a range of cakes, bakes and cream tea. We’re continuing with safety measures including screens at our till and way-marked routes and, from 17 May, limited seating. Bear in mind we can only take card payments for now. We look forward to seeing you and know you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

The Coach House shop at The Vyne, Hampshire

Shopping at The Vyne in spring 

As the days lengthen and temperatures begin to rise, you can shrug off the thicker layers and venture out to The Vyne’s coach house. Nestled inside its historic walls, the shop showcases spring homeware, indulgent food, garden accessories, children’s goodies, practical outdoor gear, pet care essentials and fashion must-haves. A fresh new ‘Riverlands’ range draws inspiration from the waterways in the trust’s care.

Our bookshop volunteers pick out their favourite reads.

Our volunteers recommend their favourite books and authors 

We asked our bookshop volunteers to recommend their favourite book or author. Keen readers, they all agree that getting lost in a good book is one of life’s joys, and one of the reasons why they volunteer at The Vyne.
