Welcome to Romsey Town!
Whether you are a recent arrival, are thinking of relocating here, or just paying a visit to Romsey Town, you'll discover a close-knit community with its own sense of identity, forged in the last decades of the Victorian era when Romsey was built. Unusually for Cambridge, the people who lived here were not dependent on the University, but worked on the railway, in construction or at the cement works. Despite its 'industrial' character, Romsey retained a village feel, surrounded by countryside and served by its own shops, businesses, pubs and institutions. This distinctiveness can be felt today.
St Philips has been the parish church of Romsey for well over a hundred years. The building itself is worth a visit as an outstanding example of how a traditional church building can be sensitively modernised to meet the needs of a new generation. Drop by the Cornerstone Cafe, find out about upcoming events, and do join us for worship.
Romsey's 'high street' is Mill Road, judged one of Britain's "Best High Streets" in a national competition in 2015. To find out more about Romsey, visit mill-road.com. Or drop by St Philips Church Centre -- we'll be proud to tell you about our community.
