Lovely serene Abbey full of history and character .Lots of history and interesting things to look at . It is also the last resting placeof Lord Mountbatten of Burma. It was his local place of worship as he lived in nearby Broadlands.

I used to work in Romsey and often visit the town but I hadn't been to the Abbey for a few years till I went with a friend last year. The Abbey is very imposing and the interior has a sense of calm and peace which I used to really enjoy when I was working and sat there for a while during my lunch breaks before going back to the office.

This ancient abbey is steeped in local and national history. Beautiful, peaceful. Combine with tea and home made cakes at St John's House and Gardens (12th century hunting lodge opposite the Abbey).

Romsey Abbey has a fascinating and long history. It is an extraordinarily beautiful and peaceful building, with fascinating architecture, fine stained glass, a host of interesting features and regular concerts. It is rarely busy which, selfishly, adds to the atmosphere. It's a deeply moving experience just to sit in it. It's an impertinence to review it as an attraction. If you're anywhere in Hampshire with half a day to spare, just go and breathe it in. It's a neglected treasure. The staff on duty, by the way, are exceptionally welcoming. And it's free! But leave a donation.
