The ancient and prosperous market town of Romsey sits on the banks of the River Test, one of the finest trout and salmon rivers in Europe.

Medieval streets cluster around the magnificent Norman Abbey which dominates the town and plays host to an extensive musical programme each year. The Abbey is the largest parish church in Hampshire and can trace its origins back to 907AD.

The medieval King John's House, Tudor Cottage and former Victorian Gun shop together make a new heritage centre. As well as some fascinating displays there are a series of period gardens which lead down to a bubbling mill stream.
 

Attractions

Just outside the town and set in extensive parklands is the eighteenth-century mansion of Broadlands, the former home of Lord Palmerston and also The Late Lord Louis Mountbatten. Broadlands is open to the public during July and August and hosts a range of craft shows, concerts and events throughout the year.

Mottisfont Abbey, five miles north-west of Romsey, is well known for its walled kitchen garden and a national collection of old-fashioned and species roses.

Or if you are looking for more contemporary entertainment then splash about in the swirling leisure pools of the Romsey Rapids.

Another unique attraction is Romsey Signal Box, a fully restored railway signal box open to the public several times each month. Visitors can pull the levers and operate the signals.
 

Accommodation

A range of bed and breakfast accommodation is available in and around Romsey. The thriving market town offers a range of charming B&B's, family run guesthouses, country cottages and farmhouses to suit all budgets.
