It costs peanuts to go into the Heritage Centre, which is a tiny museum telling the history of Romsey and the Moody family who ran a shop from this site. You then cross the tea room to enter the elderly and fascinating St John's House which, according to one guide, was built in the 10th century. An additional treat awaits in the tea shop, with all home-made cakes, but be warned, one of the eccentricities of English tea rooms is that they often shut at tea time. Last orders here, on a sunny September Friday, were at 3.45. You can sit outside then visit the absolutely delightful gardens. Not to be missed if you are visiting Romsey.
