Your local businesses in Romsey
The vibrant market town of Romsey sits on the banks of the River Test and is home to many thriving independent retailers, cafes and restaurants as well as its own department store – Bradbeers.
You will find traditional grocers and butchers alongside designer boutiques selling clothing, shoes and accessories, and stores specializing in antiques, books, homewares, crafts, flowers and gifts.
There are weekly markets on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and Romsey hosts the Hampshire Farmers Markets once a month on the first Sunday of each month.
Romsey’s medieval streets cluster around Romsey Abbey. The Norman Abbey is the largest parish church in Hampshire and plays host to an extensive music programme every year. There is plenty to see and do in Romsey. The medieval King John's House, Tudor Cottage and former Victorian Gun shop together make a heritage centre worth visiting. There are a series of period gardens which lead down to a bubbling mill stream. Another unique attraction is the Romsey Signal Box, a fully restored railway signal box open to the public several times each month. Visitors can pull the levers and operate the signals.
Just outside the town and set in extensive parklands is the eighteenth-century mansion of Broadlands, the former home of Lord Palmerston and The Late Lord Louis Mountbatten. Broadlands hosts a range of craft shows, concerts and events throughout the year.
Mottisfont Abbey, five miles north-west of Romsey, is well known for its walled kitchen garden and a national collection of old-fashioned and species roses.
Or if you are looking for more contemporary entertainment then splash about in the swirling leisure pools of the Romsey Rapids or visit Paulton’s Park.
