Romsey has a turbulent history that mostly ties in with Romsey Abbey that helped put the town on the map during the Saxon era. Today it’s an eco-friendly, digitally smart town with cool bars and cafes, fine eateries, local events, independent shops and excellent transport links. It’s also surrounded by stunning countryside and just a few miles form the coast giving you the best of both worlds.
Romsey has a fine museum located in King John’s House, a building that curiously was built long after the death of King John (although for years it was claimed that he had regularly stayed here). Foodies are very well catered for with plenty of independent eateries and new traders.
There are several notable festivals, the Beggars Fair is an all singing, all dancing event that in September brings together all kinds of live entertainment. In July it’s the Romsey Festival that brings the good times with worskshops, bands, comedy and all kinds of madness!
Sitting in the elbow created by the meeting of the M27 and M3, Romsey has exceptional transport links. Tucked in the countryside the New Forest National Park can be reached in 10 minutes. To the east and south the two motorways offer links to Brighton, London, Bournemouth and Guildford. Heading away? Southampton Airport is a 17-minute drive. The town also has a train station for commuters or weekend escapes to London and beyond.
