Other local attractions

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


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.

King John’s House


Broadlands, is the former home of the late Earl Mountbatten of Burma. The house is open during April and August (please check its website for times). Outdoor events and concerts take place on various weekends in the grounds.
