Walhampton is a hamlet in the New Forest National Park of Hampshire, England. It is in the civil parish of Boldre. It is approximately half a mile east of Lymington, on the east bank of the Lymington River. The Solent Way, a long-distance footpath, passes close to the hamlet.[1]

The Grade II* Burrard Monument,[2] also known as the Walhampton Monument, is located in the hamlet. Erected in 1840 to the memory of Sir Harry Burrard-Neale, 2nd Baronet, a former Royal Navy Admiral and M.P. for Lymington between 1790 and 1832. The base of the 75-foot (23 m) tapered obelisk is designed to look like an Egyptian doorway.[3]

Walhampton has an independent prep school, the Walhampton School, which was founded after World War II. The school is housed in Walhampton House, a Grade-II*-listed building.[4] A pub, the Walhampton Arms, is housed in the former dairy on the estate,[5] listed at Grade II.[6]
