Romsey Abbey

Romsey Abbey is one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in Southern England. Dedicated to St Mary and St Ethelflæda, an Abbess of Romsey at the time of the first millennium, it is home to a thriving community of Christians.

Whether you plan to visit the Abbey, to attend a concert, to come to a Sunday service, a wedding, a christening or a funeral, we look forward to welcoming you in person. There are also ample opportunities for you to get involved in the daily life of the Abbey.

Revd. Canon Tim Sledge, Vicar of Romsey
