Romsey station sign

Romsey station is just west of the junction between two alternative routes to Southampton, one via Chandler's Ford and Southampton Airport Parkway and the other via Redbridge. In the other direction the line heads northwest to Mottisfont and Dunbridge.

The railway, and hence the station front, is slightly elevated, so the station front is on the first floor of the station building seen here. An underpass on the left allows pedestrian and cycle access across the railway:
