Popped here with a friend who was visiting from afar. The Abbey itself is rather gorgeous, and the floorplan/map you can pick up for free on entry is very useful, full of interesting titbits of about the place. The volunteers are very, very happy to help if you have any questions.

The way they are geared up to making the visitor experience a good one. A warm welcome from a steward on entering. Excellent use of lighting, great displays, all in all really good. Our larger places of worship eg Winchester or York Minster could learn from them

We were given a guide to point us to the items of most interest which was enormously helpful. This abbey is very obviously very cherished by those who give of their time to staff and maintain it.

A quiet abbey, but enjoyable to visit. The children like the peaceful atmosphere and so do we. Do not miss coming here when you visit Romsey or surrounding areas.

I loved Romney abbey. It felt like it was just like it was when it was built in Norman times. Quiet,ancient an steeped in history. So glad it wasn't ruined like all the others.

We chanced upon this lovely town because of an error in navigation! What a gem. The little square is like stepping back into the past with beautiful buildings and a general air of peace [it was a Sunday]. We made our way to the Abbey and what a welcome from the Steward's. They gave us a condensed view of the... More

We visited the Abbey from Salisbury. A lovely place with many architectural gems. Lots of history. The staff give guided talks inside. Nice gift shop. Plenty to see regarding the history of the place.

Popped in to visit this ancient place of worship and was greeted by a steward who supplied a leaflet and some information. Entry is free although donations towards upkeep are welcomed. The place has a sense of calm and should be a must for anyone wanting to unwind for a few minutes.

Not only is this a fine building with many Norman features but it is place of great solemnity. we were lucky to visit on a reasonably quiet day and could wander round at leisure looking for the points of interest in the guide.
