Buckingham House dates back to the early part of the sixteenth century when, in 1523, it was first licensed as "Le Greyhounde" as an inn in the charge of Richard Palschyd who was a collector of taxes. It then became home to John Chadderton who was Captain of the garrison at Southsea Castle. Many exposed timbers in the property have been dated back to circa 1450 by English Heritage experts. By 1628 the building was known as Ye Spotted Dogge Inne and was the scene of the assassination of George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham by naval lieutenant John Felton. The dagger which is reputed to have been used to commit the murder is on display. The house had been prepared for a visit by the King with special panelling in his proposed bedchamber. On the day of the murder, it was thought too dangerous for the King to venture into the old High Street. After the death of Buckingham, the property is mentioned in the diaries of Samuel Pepys with an entry for May 2nd 1661 saying he went to "visit the room where Buckingham was killed". At the time of the murder, Buckingham House was owned by Captain John Mason who went on to be the founder of New Hampshire in America.

In the early seventeen hundreds the house was bought by Dr William Smith who is thought to have been responsible for the installation of decorative panelling in the William and Mary style in about 1707. Dr Smith died in 1732 and left a bequest for the foundation of Portsmouth Grammar School which now is sited alongside Buckingham House. After the Second World War the building was rescued by architect Mr R A Thomas who carried out a restoration which was featured in an article in The Times, London. After many years of use as offices, the building was sold by private treaty to the existing owner who has carried out an impressive further restoration of this Grade II* Listed property. Buckingham House, now Ye Spotted Dogge,  offers 6 beautiful en-suite rooms with guest lounge, breakfast room, private bar and a substantial secluded garden for the exclusive use of residents.  Enjoy our luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen &towels plus the "Scottish Fine Soap Company" toiletries.
