Staunton Country Park


Staunton Country Park is a historic estate with beautifully landscaped parkland, at its prime in the Regency period, which has been redeveloped into a visitor attraction.

Over the last 200 years several different families have left their mark on the landscape, and these different influences can be uncovered across the park. In more recent years, the site has been managed by Hampshire County Council to create the country park as it is today. And, in 1987, Leigh Park Gardens officially became Staunton Country Park, in memory of Sir George Staunton.

When the Heritage Lottery Project began in 2017, the farm and country park were established as two separate sites in recognition of their varied customer offering. Since then, the country park has run in conjunction with Queen Elizabeth Country Park, our sister park eight miles to the north. A small and dedicated staff team works across both sites. They are ably assisted by our principal partner, the Beacon Partnership.

The Beacon Community Partnership brings together Havant Day Services and Hampshire Countryside Service, through Staunton Country Park and The Right to Work. The Partnership is committed to providing a land-based facility for individuals with learning difficulties that will improve life and work chances by offering access to a range of experiences including farming, horticulture, retail and customer service.
