Romsey in Hampshire, is the Southern
Gateway to the beautiful Test Valley and sits astride
the river crossing at Middlebridge, a strategic staging
point on the route west to the King's hunting grounds in
the New Forest. For centuries it has been a traditional
market town with its market charter originally held by
the Abbess of Romsey Abbey. Romsey was incorporated as a
borough in 1607 by a grant of King James I.
Today Romsey retains its street markets as well as a
thriving town centre with shops, restaurants, pubs and
cafes and historical sites.
At the centre of Romsey is the
Market Place and the Town Hall, meeting place for
Romsey Town Council. The names and contact numbers for
Town Councillors may be found on the Contacts page,
while the times of council meetings are listed on the
Meetings page. Romsey is also home to the southern
Test Valley Borough Council, situated in
the Former Magistrates' Court, Church Street.
Many residents with a Romsey postal
address actually live in Romsey Extra which has
its own Parish Council and
Our attractive Town Hall is
licensed for civil weddings and welcomes bookings for
weddings, receptions and business meetings. Our Court
Room is ideal for formal and informal family gatherings.
