Welcome to Houghton Lodge & Gardens
Houghton Lodge has been described by recent visitors as ‘the jewel of the Test Valley’, and ‘A Stately Pleasure-Dome on the most romantic river in England’. It has been the home of the Busk family for more than a century, and still is. It provides a perfect setting for corporate entertaining and romantic weddings. Some people visit Houghton for its architecture, some for its literary connections and some for its gardens; but everyone leaves with a sense of its ageless tranquillity and special magic. Little wonder that Houghton was placed second in Country Life’s search for ‘England’s Favourite Country House.’
