There is a lot packed into a small place, the history of King John, and the Moody family, as well as a lovely garden. The entrance fee is reasonable and appropriate to the size of the museum.

Opposite Romsey Abbey is this small but interesting museum. The reasonable entry fee entitles you to 12 months re-entry. The staff were very friendly and encouraged us to try on the very heavy chainmail armour. The bone 'cobbles' was very unusual although a little creepy!...More

This is a lovely little tearoom, stepping back in time, embroidered table cloths and bone china tea pots and cups and saucers. The cream tea was lovely. A bit off the beaten track from the town centre, but well worth a visit.
