I'm discovering Southampton along with you!
Event: -

When the Vyne was built in the 16th Century, there were many animals roaming the grounds around the country house. These included deer, horses and falcons as well as other smaller creatures and critters. These animals were also very important to Tudor life for transport, farming and hunting. From November 21st till February 9th you can pick up a trail map at make your way around the grounds of the Vyne, learning all about these animals and why they were so important to the Tudors.

Visiting the Vyne is a great family weekend activity. From Southampton it's a short 35 mile drive, passing through Eastleigh and Winchester on the way through. Stop off somewhere for a bite to eat along the way, or grab something at the Vyne Brewhouse tea-room.
