Romsey Tips

Broadlands, the Mountbatten family home now owned by Lord Brabourne, is an elegant historic Palladian building dating from 1767, its estates lying on 4 miles of the River Test. The garden, designed by Capability Brown is just one of its many treasures on the estate. Open for guided tours with car parking for up to 700 cars. Nearby is Romsey Abbey, dating back to the 10th century. - Carol

Brit Quote:
