We have visited this park and chapel on numerous occasions, it is set on the banks of the Solent commanding sweeping views of the water front, take time to visit the chapel and learn the history of this location,tea rooms and miniature railway make this a superb place to visit.

Its a shame that this chapel shop and visitor centre never seems to be open as it would great to see in all its glory. The building looks very attractive to the eye.

The Chapel is being refurbished at present, however the grounds are amazingly beautiful. Great for families, couples or singles wanting nice views, plenty of well kept paths and the right mix of history.

This iconic chapel, once part of the Netley Hospital complex, and now all that remains of it, is not only a must see landmark site within the Royal Victoria Country park, but plays host to live music in the 'Chapel Sessions'. On Wednesday 2nd July the chapel played host to two local family bands, in an 'Americana' themed night. The... More

I have admired the view of the Royal Victoria Chapel from the ferry every time I visit the Isle of Wight. This weekend I decided to visit the Country Park and Chapel leaving the island until later in the year. On a warm sunny day the setting is wonderful. Entrance is free but parking charges apply. There is something for... More

RVCP Chapel is the only remaining building from this magnificent hospital serving warwounded for many years.. Now its contents relive some of those memories and you can climb the tower with a tourguide to see the view from near the top. Well worth a visit.

We visited this lovely chapel on the occasion of a pumpkin festival in aid of youth training tall ships. The history of the place is very interesting and it is a shame that only the chapel remains.

The RVCP is set in a very scenic area - especially if you like water. The view is slightly spoiled by Fawley oil refinery across the water, but even that has a certain attractiveness in the right light! The chapel is very imposing and can be seen from quite a way off - especially from the Isle of Wight or... More
