Miss Moody's Tudor Tea Room. The Victorian museum features aspects of Romsey life during the Victorian and Edwardian period. The 'old gunshop' has been reconstructed upstairs, using original fixtures, fittings and display items, while William Moody and his sister wait to greet you in the recreated parlour in the room behind. The history of the site of King John's House's gardens can be traced back to the late 1530s when King Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries. Then, King John's House and the surrounding land belonged to the Romsey Benedictine nunnery. Now, this area has been transformed into a series of beautiful gardens by a group of dedicated volunteers, who have created a welcoming oasis in the middle of town. Pre-18th-Century plants flourish in the main garden, along with a Victorian terrace and a fountain courtyard. We also offer a range of fun events and activities at King John's House and Heritage Centre, including regular art exhibitions, talks and craft workshops. Visit our event page to see what's coming up.
