Other local attractions

Why not combine your visit to the Abbey with other local attractions? Here are three ideas.

Garden with tables and parasols along a path, with an old brick-built house on the left
King John’s House

King John’s House, a 13th-century merchant’s house, is just a few yards away from the Abbey. It boasts a beautiful garden, early 14th-century wall graffiti and original roof timbers. It serves as the town museum.

Mottisfont Abbey, a National Trust property renowned for its rose garden and a room decorated by Rex Whistler. Open year-round, it’s three miles north of Romsey.

Broadlands is the former home of the late Earl Mountbatten of Burma and initial destination of the Prince and Princess of Wales on their honeymoon in 1981. The house is open during the summer months (please check its website for times). Outdoor events and concerts take place on various weekends in the grounds.
