Fawley Hill

Country Estate

About The Estate

Fawley Hill is the private estate of the late Sir William McAlpine and Lady McAlpine in the heart of the English countryside. Once described by Country Life magazine as ‘the most bonkers estate in Britain’, it is home to a restored Victorian railway station, the steepest standard gauge railway track in the world, a railway museum and over 20 animal species.
Fawley Hill hosts regular steam rallies and events and is also available for weddings and private hire (corporate events, conferences, film & TV).

Private Hire

Fawley Hill is a magical venue for any occasion, whether it’s filming a music video, a lunch for 20 or dinner and dancing for 200. Enjoy drinks and canapes in our restored Victorian train station, and why not have a ride on the steam train too?

Weddings

Getting married here is a truly magical experience and no two Fawley Hill weddings are the same. We love how every couple bring their own unique style and personal touches to their special day. Ensure your wedding is one that your guests will never forget, in one of the quirkiest venues around.
