Just a great bit of history. Wonderful architecture . I'm not particularly religious but I just loved the whole experience, Also being in the center of Romsey you get to do both the Abbey and the market town. Worth a visit

Was lucky enough to be here for a wedding in November 2015. Didn't see much of the grounds around the Abbey (especially as it was raining), but it's a beautiful setting for a wedding.

A lovely place to visit, so many times you pass through the town and yet stop off. We took visitors there and they were enchanted by it

As I live close to the Abbey I have been in several times and enjoy doing so. Parking is fairly easy as long as you miss school in and out times, set in pretty grounds the abbey is the working parish church for Romsey. There are from time to time exhibitions and concerts happening. There are wonderful guides working there... More

Romsey Abbey what a beautiful building full of history and well maintained to say its over 900 years old. Lots to look at to say its so small but nice if you want to waste some time. As Romsey itself is not very big markets are on tuesdays and fridays
