Each day throughout the Festival, there will be different tours of Romsey Abbey exploring different aspects of the history, life and art of the Abbey. Today the focus turns to the Abbey’s daughter church – the tiny Victorian Church of St Swithun’s at Crampmoor – appropriately on St Swithun’s Day (hopefully it won’t rain)!
Today’s Tour: Saturday 15th July at 3pm.
At ST SWITHUN’S CHURCH, CRAMPMOOR.
The tour will last about 45 minutes
Tickets £4 from the Tour Guide. All proceeds to Romsey Abbey funds.
