‪I live locally but have never visited until today, when I had a guided tour. What a treat it was! The guide was extremely knowledgeable. He explained all about the different phases of the house through the ages, along with lots of local links and fascinating facts. The museum was a joy all of its own - crammed full of interesting articles and information. It was a joy to visit.‬

‪We took the guided tour and I would recommend that others do too. Its the same price as self guided, but without the enthusiasm and info shared by our guide, an amusing and knowledgeable bloke whose name I didn't catch, we wouldnt have learned anywhere near as much. There was an interesting exhibit too about the clothing of wealthy merchants wives. I look forward to a return visit in future when the museum reflects the stories of the residents of Church Court. Lovely gardens and tea room too.‬

‪Really enjoyed the tour with our knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. Didn’t have time for the tea room but that looked worth a visit too.‬

‪Tucked away in a tiny street, near Romsey Abby is Kings John's House, an amazing building dating back to the 13th century. Reputedly built for King John, this building shows the many alterations and changes of use that have taken place up to the early 20th century. We found this an absolutely fascinating building, if you are very lucky, the centre's manager may give a guided tour, one of the best we have ever experienced.
If you like English history, this is a must!

‪There are rare occasions when you are offered exemplary customer service. Yesterday was one of them! As a result, I must thank Mark and his team for making our trip to Romsey and, specifically, King John's House, a very special and memorable one. Thank you for the excellent gastronomic delight you offered us at Lucy & Dan's wedding reception. The attention you paid to ensure that Jasmine and I could enjoy the celebrations was much appreciated. As Arnie would say, "I'll be back!"‬

Thank you David, your feedback means a great deal. The team will be really pleased to hear how well you feel they looked after you. It was a real pleasure to look after such a wonderful wedding party - at our very first Covid-19 secure wedding event under the new rule of 15. Everyone at King John's House wishes Lucy and Dan well for a wonderful future together.

‪A hidden gem. The gardens were a delight and should be on your "to visit" list. Looked after by volunteers you will want to take a look around the rear of the museum at the well tended garden.
While there mkae sure you sit in the garden and have tea and cake or more if hungry.
On the whole a very pleasant experience. The staff were a delight. Value for money.‬

‪We were in Romsey for a few hours and wanted somewhere for lunch. We had struggled in all honesty to find somewhere we liked (some cafes didn't seem to have reopened post-lockdown). We stumbled across this place by chance and it was just the sort of place we were looking for. I think in order to make it covid-friendly, they had closed off the indoor tables (it looked very small inside, that's for sure) but considering it was the hottest day of the year so far, everyone wanted to sit outside anyway. The gardens were very pretty indeed with an interesting collection of fruits and flowers.

The choice of food was a little limited, very possibly again due to current restrictions, I'm not sure, but was more than adequate for a lunchtime snack.‬

‪A more beautiful setting for a tea room you would be hard put to find. The gardens are fantastic so sitting there is a pleasure. The extremely old house is itself interesting. The tea is good too. ‬

‪We had intended to follow the Romsey Heritage Trail and to do some wild Daffy spotting for our 2020 Spring Adventure but we managed to choose possibly the wettest day in February to make our Visit. The deep puddled roads leading into town and the wet and muddy footpaths around town, curtailed our adventures to a scamper between landmark buildings whilst hiding under Golf Umbrellas.

On our way to the Abbey, after coffee in the Corn Market, we found the Tourist Centre, housed in a streetside Victorian four square red brick building, with inappropriate single pane sash windowed accommodation over a period shop front. Some 100 years ago this was Moody’s gun shop, as recreated upstairs as part of the museum but now a spacious Tourist Centre abounding with useful information and welcoming staff.

Behind the Centre is a Tudor Cottage, entered by linking door through a covered yard. The cottage has atypical half timbering of black beams and white infill brick. Down stairs is now Miss Moody’s Tea Room, serving light lunch and proper tea from rose covered teapots and (for a Yorkshire lad,) thimble sized, finger up china tea cups.
Upstairs is a reconstructed Edwardian Parlour, with Miss Moody and maybe her solicitor taking tea over correspondence, and a family tableau in the parlour after supper huddled around a meagre fireplace.
Behind the Tudor Cottage, is the Name of the Game, a square heavyweight House that various owners have remodelled over a 750 year lifetime. It was previously part of the Church Court, that was several, now demolished buildings serving the disadvantaged community and now a Georgian walled waters edge garden around a benched colonnaded courtyard Water pump.

But it was not yet spring, the snowdrops were still gathering courage to foray upwards and galoshes were needed, so we gave all that a miss.

Entrance into King Johns House is by way of a side door off the garden path and into the back of the Tudor Cottage, where we found somewhere to store our brollies and to donate a Visitor tax of £5. We were ‘gated’ through a 17thC Window, now a door, and very thick wall into the ground floor of the old house. Not a lot to amuse, but a lot to look at, and the raw fabric of the house is very apparent in its state of rural rustication, (bits falling off!), and signs of many, many badly managed remodelling projects. Wide cut nailed floorboards with remains of old wax, and an abundance of modern lights.
There is a wide brick built fireplace suitable for a hog-roast spit, and half a tree, with a hot Bread Proving cupboard built around the chimney but no sign of a bread oven. The guide states that the house had an external lean to kitchen, but gives no details.

The house has survived many changes, not all done with due craftsmanship, with Windows becoming doors, and doors becoming walls as needs changed over the years. There is an interesting more recent bone floor made from horse and sheep bones, from the time when a metal workers shop was housed on site.( 18th C ?).
The upstairs Great Hall shows signs of ongoing indecision of where to put the fireplace, and dividing walls, and records Courtly boredom before television as evidenced by carved graffiti in the stonework.
The roof trusses are on display showing a hodge podge of odd timbers patched in to control racking and rot, many showing their age and prior use.
The building has been assaulted by varied use over the years, from that of a nuns infirmary, a blacksmith, a royal palace for school aged princesses, a weavers shop, a church court of poors cottages, and a parish workhouse, until it was so dilapidated that in the early 20thC it was attributed by the owner as a 12thC hunting lodge of King John to enhance its value, in preparation for the burden of maintenance to be passed to the Town Burgesses by deed of gift..
In retrospect King John would have got little use from his investment. He died some 40 years before it was built, but why deny a good story.
Well worth an hour’s exploration of maybe how we used to live, build and adapt, and to partake of a good cottage lunch, and maybe a desirous Bread and Butter Pudding will be on offer.‬
