Romsey Area Guide
Romsey is a stunning market town in the heart of the Test Valley and surrounded by some of Hampshire’s prettiest countryside. The town itself is full of culture and history; our Norman Abbey is a popular attraction, so too the Sir Harold Hiller Gardens, Mottisfont Abbey, The Memorial Park, Paultons Park and of course the New Forest National Park amongst others.
Romsey lies just an hour and a quarter from London. With the world’s most famous chalk stream (the River Test) running through, bustling streets, historic buildings, a museum, an independent department store (Bradbeers), the Plaza Theatre, a comprehensive range of amenities, a mainline train station offering access to the South and Southampton International Airport and tranquil green spaces just waiting to be explored.
Hampshire has an abundance of quality food and drink, grown, produced and reared in the county, so it is not surprising that the town hosts a regular Farmer’s Market. For energetic days out there are nature trails, sports activities, theme parks and wildlife parks and for those that prefer a quieter time, the New Forest National Park and the Hampshire coastline are close by.
Many buyers are looking to move to Romsey and it’s surrounding villages, taking advantage of our excellent state and private schooling as well as the excellent links to the Capital and nearby commercial centres. Conveniently located just 9 miles from Southampton, 12 miles from Winchester and 17 miles to the Cathedral City of Salisbury, Romsey is nestled in picturesque countryside and surrounded by quaint rural villages, making it easy to see why the area is such a popular place to reside.
