We have family living in Romsey but had never heard of the Abbey. I happened to have a spare hour to walk around the town during my visit early in the New Year and I so wish I had had more time. This is an interesting building from the outside and spectacular on the inside - at least I think... 更多
We visited the Abbey from Kent and attended the carol service on 18/12/16. People were friendly and welcoming and the Abbey itself is incredibly beautiful. The service was attended by around 800 we understand, and this provided great atmosphere and a beautiful start to Christmas. The choir were the highlight of the service and made the most fabulous sound in... 更多
It is always a pleasure to walk round this magnificent Abbey.It has a sense of peace all of its own. The volunteer staff a very friendly and helpful. If you would like twenty minutes of peace to escape from this busy world , I would recommend you go in take a seat and feel the peace, which passes all understanding.
Very historical, beautiful windows, but didn't find a leaflet on who, what or when they were designed and made, just saying. Contrary to other reviewers, I like the fact that the stewards approach and offer help, they can direct you to a peaceful place for prayer etc. Some of the banners, made by church members, were extraordinary. Certainly worth a... 更多
A wonderful building full of atmosphere. I am a frequent visitor to concerts and a sometime church goer. The advent service was packed . A beautiful traditional occasion. Everyone is really friendly. A huge contrast with Winchester Cathedral However it could be even nicer if those welcoming visitors were a little less enthusiastic. Often a visit is for a quiet... 更多
Not visited the Abbey for many years and had forgotten what a beautiful and interesting building it is. One of the guides approached us and gave us lots of interesting history on the building and the graves / memorials within. Our visit coincided with a rehearsal for a recital which was just lovely to sit and listen to. If you... 更多
I love this place and even though I live just up the road I still love a regular pop in just to soak it up. So much history it is seeping out of the walls and it is truly beautiful (so often things are over rated but not here) In one place you can still see the origin footings which... 更多
Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. I was given a useful map of the building on entering which proved handy and pointed out the various features of the abbey. There are lovely intricate stained glass windows and informative plaques throughout the building. A nice place to "escape" the stresses of the modern world we live in.
What a beautiful place. So serene, peaceful and uplifting. It has a fascinating history, fantastic vaulted ceilings and lovely stained glass windows. We've lived close to Romsey for over three years but this is only the second time we've visited the Abbey (the first was to a christening and we were focussed on the font and, basically, ignored the rest... 更多
