Monday 24 April 2023

VSL went to check out this stunning and newly refurbished property in the heart of Hampshire, and it does not disappoint! Boasting a rich history dating back to the 19th century, the hotel offers resplendent architecture, grounds and exceptional service; ideal for your next corporate away-day... 

Fun fact: although it has not been proven, it is believed that William Shakespeare may have been in attendance to the Elvetham Entertainment or even perhaps performed as one of its actors, with a number of scholars believing that the water pageant was a large inspiration for the play “A Midsummer Nights Dream” written in 1595 not too long after the queen’s visit to Elvetham.
