The Grange Festival is held every summer in the heart of Hampshire at one of the country’s most magnificent neo-classical houses, Grange Park. Located on the Baring family’s estate not far from Winchester, it is arguably one of the most beautiful of all country house settings. Today, the Grange Festival is in the hands of the countertenor, Michael Chance, who took on the role of Artistic Director in 2017.

The Itinerary:

We will spend one full day exploring the ancient city of Winchester,the original capital of England, including highlights such as the historic Winchester College, which dates from 1382. We will visit the College and see the Chamber Court, the Scholars’ Dining Room and the Gothic Chapel. We shall also visit The Great Hall, all that remains of Winchester Castle, and home to what is considered by many to be King Arthur’s Round Table. The highlight of any visit to the city is its magnificent mediaeval Cathedral where Queen Mary I married King Philip II on 25 July 1554. There will be a visit to an exquisite private garden not far from Winchester. We stay in the Winchester Royal Hotel in the city centre – one dinner will be served at the hotel and two at Grange Park.
