    Romsey – 5 Quirky Facts

    1. Early Days
      Romsey dates back to the Saxon era. The village became more important after the arrival of the Abbey in 907AD. The Abbey brought visitors and wealth, which also made it something of a target. In 993 the village and Abbey were virtually destroyed by Viking invaders who ransacked the village. It was the churches wealth that rebuilt the Abbey and once again village life grew around it.
    2. Henry & John
      King Henry granted Romsey’s charter in the 12th century allowing the town a market which helped Romsey thrive and the population swelled to 1,000, a very sizable settlement for the time. Another royal linked with Romsey is King John, you can visit King John’s Hunting Lodge, however the name was certainly a later invention. The lodge was actually built after his death, so the name might have been a ruse used to attract visitors to the town at a much later period.
    3. Baron Romsey – Mountbatten
      Just outside Romsey is a grand estate named Broadlands which has had some notable owners, chief of which would be Lord Louis Mountbatten. The uncle of Prince Philip, favourite of Her Majesty the Queen, and a great grandson of Queen Victoria, Louis Mountbatten was actually related to both Philip and the Queen and among many titles he held was ‘Baron Romsey’. He was a hugely distinguished sailor and became the First Sea Lord. He was Supreme Allied Commander in Asia and in 1943 oversaw the recapture of Burma and Singapore from the Japanese. During his distinguished career he was also commander-in-chief of the British Mediterranean Fleet, the last Viceroy of India, NATO Commander Allied Forces Mediterranean and the youngest ever head of the British Armed Forces. He was assassinated by the IRA and buried in Romsey Abbey with full military honours.
    4. Cheers!
      Romsey was once home to a thriving brewery dating back to the 18th century. Strong & Co was one of a number of brewers that made beer in the town, eventually all the breweries were bought up by Strongs which were the major employer in the town until it closed in 1981. However micro-breweries are making a comeback in the area and it is now possible once again to find locally brewed beer. Hurrah!
    5. Not Again!
      In 1943, during the English Civil War the town was attacked again. A garrison of Royalist forces occupied Romsey. The Parliamentary Army rolled up and after a brief skirmish the King’s troops fled and the Parliamentarians ransacked the town. The Royalists returned in 1644, kicked out the Cromwell’s men and… Ransacked the town. Thankfully they left in January 1645 and the town didn’t see any more troops (until the area was used to hold the thousands of men massing before the D-Day landings of June 1944).

    About Romsey

    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.
