Royal Victoria Country Park
Country / Royal Park
Once the home of the biggest military hospital in the Victorian Empire, this 200-acre site is now ideal for relaxation and leisure.
Offering fantastic views across Southampton Water, Royal Victoria Country Park is a great place to watch the busy shipping coming in and out of Southampton. The park’s ancient woodlands, large open spaces, boardwalks and ponds offer something for everyone. There are a number of picnic areas throughout the site and family BBQ areas can be hired. The Café in the Park serves a wide variety of hot and cold food and children will love taking a ride on the miniature railway or burning off steam in the picturesque, fully accessible play areas.
The iconic Chapel is currently undergoing a major refurbishment programme, thanks to £2.68 million investment from Hampshire County Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Visitors will be able to discover the fascinating history of the site, which has links to Florence Nightingale and Queen Victoria, in an exciting new exhibition and take tours to the top of the chapel tower. The grounds will have artistic interpretation and information boards that will demonstrate the size, length and importance of the hospital in both local and national history.
There is an exciting programme of events and activities taking place throughout the year – please see our Facebook page or website for more information.
