Venue Information
The Elvetham is an elegant country house hotel in Hampshire, set in 35 acres of beautiful gardens. The Elvetham Estate is suffused with over a century of English history. England’s tales are woven through its ancient oaks and parklands. It’s the site where Eadric the Wild plotted against William the Conqueror in the 11th Century, where King John gathered his nobles in readiness for war with France in 1205, and where King Henry VIII fell in love with Jane Seymour, his third wife and mother of his longed-for heir, just to name a few.
It is believed that Shakespeare himself performed on this site for Elizabeth I at a pageant held in her honour. The famous beauty of this extravagant event is thought to have provided inspiration for William Shakespeare’s later play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
