About The Vyne

The Vyne is a 16th century English historic house in Hampshire which played host to King Henry VIII on a number of occasions.

Built for Henry’s Lord Chamberlain, Lord Sandys, in the early 16th century, The Vyne later became the residence of the Chute family up until the mid-20th century. The house was continually developed and refurbished over the centuries yet still includes elements of the original Tudor architecture.

Today, The Vyne is owned and operated by the National Trust. Visitors to The Vyne can peruse its historic furniture collections, artwork, sculptures and adornments, which reflect the changing styles of the passing centuries. It is also possible to visit the 16th century Tudor chapel, once frequented by Henry VIII, as well as the galleries of the mansion.

As well as its historic house, The Vyne boasts charming gardens which include a lake, woodlands and wetlands and are a draw for visitors in the summer months.
