Each day throughout the Festival, one of the Abbey Tour Guides will explore a different aspect of the history, life and art of the Abbey. Every day something different!
All tours start 3pm, and will last for about 45 minutes.
VICTORIAN IMPROVEMENTS IN THE ABBEY.
Whitewash, galleries and box pews were swept aside by Romsey’s Victorian vicars Noel and Berthon leaving the Abbey much as we see it today.
Tickets £4 from the Tour Guide. All proceeds to Romsey Abbey funds.
