The original manor and area known as Broadlands had belonged to Romsey Abbey since before the time of the 11th century English Norman Conquest. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Broadlands was sold and passed through several owners before being bought by Henry Temple, 1st Viscount Palmerston in 1736.
In 1767 a major architectural "transformation" was begun by Lancelot "Capability" Brown and completed by Henry Holland, which led to making Broadlands the Palladian-style mansion seen today.
Broadlands was later the country estate of the 19th century Prime Minister, Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston and in the 20th century home of 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma.
