Lullingstone gives a chance to see the remains of a villa from Roman times & to see how it was constructed & set out.There is a good introductory film & the artefacts found are well displayed.Though the most notable are in the British Museum. It is interesting to see the connection with pagan cults and later onChristianity. Though of interest... More

The Villa is absolutely fascinating and well presented. The site has been brought to life with clear and interesting displays, artefacts retrieved from the site, a film charting the Villa's history and interactive activities for children (or fun loving adults!) My children particularly loved dressing up as Romans! The staff are friendly and knowledgable. We all enjoyed the experience and... More

There is nothing to except a vaguely paved floor in a middle of some stones. They tried to decorate the room with some posters. The ruins are inside a kind of ugly warehouse. Don't be fooled and save yourself £8 per person.

They've tried hard to make it interesting, but there're not a huge amount to see. Could to pop in on the way to or from somewhere else. To be fair, this would have been more impressive had we not recently been to bath. It would help if the signs to get there were better.

Liked. The preservation of the foundations under cover is well planned and affords great views of the famous mosaics Disliked. Directions a bit confusing once you leave the main road A225

I knew before I came here that it was here where the first paintings of Christianity in Britain where found - and not much else really - I had been to Chadworth and Fishborne but Lullingstone had been on my list for quite a few years but I can only ever fit so much into a holiday in the UK....

The finding and unearthing of this site is one on England's most important Roman Archaeological sites. Young and old will love this relatively compact site, showing the findings that was located in 1949 and carefully dug up and maintained. On three levels by stairs or elevator makes one feel as if you are experiencing the past. Interactive activities for adults... More

Having lived nearby for 15 years I am now ashamed that we haven't visited before! Easy to find, good parking beside the beautiful Darent. Good disabled facilities, all flat, toilets, lift to upper level etc. Nice shop with jams etc to sample although only machine tea and coffee and biscuits and crisps. Good plant stall. My girls (9&12) loved it,... More

After we visited the Corinium Museum last year, we now included this villa in our program, so most people had high expectations. Although the film gives a clear introduction and the remains of the villa are impressive, the surrounding displays were a little bit disappointing and seem to be directed to young kids (schools). So several of our group members... More

Defo worth a visit but combine with a walk as takes not much more than an hour really. There are other things nearby to see. Staff really helpful & informative & good range if gifts. Would love the armour if I had somewhere to put it! Second visit there after some years & it gets better. It opens up lots... More
