We went during the Easter weekend and had a look around. We were given a guide which explains points of interest. Worth a look!

Romsey Abbey is a beautiful place if you are in the area it is worth visiting. There are gardens outside which is perfect for a picnic on a sunny day.

Friendly welcome at the Abbey and a guide leaflet to make sure you see everything and get an explanation. The saxon scalp and plait was amazing.
