Venue Accessibility

Thanks to recent improvements, the centre of Romsey is now a virtually kerb free environment with smoother and wider pavements. It’s very easy to traverse across the road from one pavement to the other.

As you will see below the majority of our venues have no issues regarding access for those festival goers in wheelchairs or with mobility issues. There are a few however with steps, thanks to the Georgian and Victorian builders at the time.
