A wonder of the Solent

Situated overlooking Southampton’s Royal Pier, The Bugle is a beautiful townhouse venue exclusively available for sleepover celebrations, weddings, corporate events, shoots and homestays.

Offering the best of both worlds, The Bugle is a venue like no other. Here, old-world elegance meets a modern-day approach. Period decadence sits alongside unpretentious style and sea views compete with the charm of a historic city.

Whether you’re celebrating your nuptials, on a location shoot, or catching up with friends, we give you the keys to a breath-taking backdrop. Your imagination creates the story.

The Bugle is the perfect party pad. From milestone birthdays to product launches – and everything in between - we open our doors to events of all sizes throughout the year and offer the flexibility and facilities to fulfil (almost) any brief.

Whether you’re planning an elaborate affair or a low-key gathering, the house can be decorated and dressed to suit your style and budget. We recommend an amazing caterer and DJ to get the party started, leaving any additional personal touches in your hands.


Step inside The Bugle and be wowed by five storeys of Italianate period elegance, all exclusively yours to use as you wish.

Known as Southampton’s most beautiful Victorian building, and conveniently located opposite the registry office, The Bugle offers the glamour and grandeur of a stately home without the rules and restrictions. A blank canvas ready to be reimagined for your day, the house is yours to enjoy as if it’s your own.

We accommodate celebrations up to 110 seated guests, with additional capacity for standing. For all celebrations we provide access to the three event spaces, eight luxury hotel-standard bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and our list of essential Wonder Suppliers as standard. We give you complete control over everything else.

From local-produce sharing platters to formal fine-dining dishes, our caterers will work with you to create mouth-watering menus that keep you and your guests satisfied throughout your stay.

For your Event

Food & Drink

From the moment you step inside The Bugle, it’s easy to see why it has long been regarded as one of Southampton’s most beautiful buildings. Following an extensive makeover, the once derelict property has been painstakingly restored; the old bones of the building sitting alongside modern, artistic styling to create a unique canvas for location shoots and sets.

Available for film, TV and photographic shoots, our house offers a range of indoor spaces suitable for almost any creative brief, alongside a fully equipped kitchen and eight en-suite bedrooms for overnight stays. And because the house is not a residential home, restrictions for use are kept to a minimum allowing you to decorate and dress most spaces to fit the job.

Location Venue

From family gatherings to adults-only occasions, The Bugle is a house made for memory-making homestays.

Alongside a welcoming, anything-goes atmosphere, our homestays include all the indulgent necessities that accompany a luxury escape. Serve up a feast in the function room, mix up your favourite drinks in our bar and turn up the tunes in our basement club, before settling down for a blissful nights’ sleep in one of eight beautiful bedrooms.

Available for a night, a weekend or longer, we can guarantee it’ll be so much more than your typical homestay.
