Ramble around Romsey, alongside the tranquil River Test, on a guided tour of this market town, granted its first charter by Henry I. Romsey thrived in the Middle Ages from the wool trade reflected in the town's beautiful buildings including our lunch venue, the Grade II listed, 18th century White Horse Hotel. Our tour will include the Norman Abbey, built between 1120 and 1140. After lunch, enjoy a guided tour of Grade I listed Broadlands, a Palladian-style mansion rebuilt in 1767 by Capability Brown and Henry Holland on the site of the earlier Tudor and Jacobean manor. Between 1767 and 1780, William Kent's earlier deformalising of the gardens was completed. Broadlands remains the family home of the 3rd Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma.
