Venue Accessibility

Thanks to improvements in 2019, 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. This year all the roads in the middle of town are closed to through traffic.

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.
