Other accommodation near Romsey

The beautiful market town of Romsey, just north of Southampton, has only fifteen thousand citizens, making it one of the smaller burgs in the Hampshire region. This meager number is bolstered, though, by the fact that Romsey proper only covers about a five kilometer-wide span. This small area is filled with beautiful scenery and foliage, though, and due to this it is surprising that Romsey's population isn't much larger than it is.

Whatever the population, Romsey is well acquainted with the gorgeous River Test that runs through the city limits. The Test has given much to Romsey over the many centuries it has possessed township and to this day fishing is a big part of Romsey's appeal to the rest of England. Fly fishermen can consistently be seen in the shallower parts of the river, desperately trying to snag one of the prized Romsey trout that are acclaimed like few other fish in the region. Romsey has had ties to the water in other ways too. The traditional watermill has factored into the history of this city even before industry swept across the continent. As far back 1100 A.D. there were several mills running consistently and mills can still be found to this day in Romsey, adding more beauty to the already lush cityscape. Right alongside the Test is the famed Sadler's Mill, standing since the 1600s as a testament to the unwavering presence of water in the background of everybody's daily life. Many visitors come to Romsey each year simply to bear witness to this ancient spectacle.

Another major draw for Romsey's tourism is the esteemed Romsey Abbey. This Benedictine church was built around the 1100s when many other English cities began to build their own abbeys to accommodate the major Christian Revolution at the time. As one of the oldest and most imposing buildings in the city, Romsey Abbey is open every day to any visitor curious about the medieval roots of the city. Other Saxon churches can be found throughout the town as well, further cementing Romsey's place in the annals of history.

Like many European cities that predate the Middle Ages, Romsey was subject to vast revolutions and major world events throughout time. In the 1200s Romsey became an important town in the wool trade which was shaping many a city throughout England. During this time Romsey was a full-fledged market burg with a population of over a thousand people but another major historical event was just around the corner: The Black Death. When the bubonic plague swept across the world, Romsey was not excluded from the suffering and over half the population died during the epidemic.

Romsey has seen itself grow, fade, climb, and fall time and time again throughout its long life but the quaint, friendly nature of the people and the town itself has never wavered. To this day one can still find villagers fishing in the river, filling up at the watermill, or simply praying at the abbey. Though time marches on, Romsey plays to the beat of its own drum and, one can only hope, always will.
