King's Somborne is a village in Hampshire, England. The village lies on the edge of the valley of the River Test.

Notable buildings[edit]

King's Somborne War Memorial was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and unveiled in 1921; the commission originated through Herbert Johnson, for whom Lutyens designed the nearby country house at Marshcourt earlier in the 20th century. During the war, Johnson and his wife ran the mansion as a military hospital.[2]

The Church of St Peter and St Paul is a grade II* listed building.[3]
