As members of English Heritage I used to bring my children here regularly. On a recent visit I was pleased to see how much more child friendly the displays about the villa had become. It is a little pricey for what you get - especially with added car parking charges - so I would check out if any special events... More

We had made a trip to the local lavender fields but did not realise that without the guided tour our trip would not last more than half an hour with a bit of shopping. We spotted signs for the villa on the way in and decided to have a look. We were not disappointed. It is not a cheap visit... More

Well presented with the remains of the villa in a purpose built warehouse. Interesting information and interactive exhibits. Visited on a sunny day but would have been ideal if raining as all inside b

Hard to find, but when found nicely preserved roman villa. They have roofed the villa and build an nice exhibition arround it. There is a interesting mosaic on display. What I miss are the other buildings outside ( the mausoleum, the villa outbuildings etc.) and a good audiotour. If you have an EH-pass go see it,

This is one of the best examples of a mosaic floor that we have seen. The Villa has quite a long history which is explained on a short but very informative video showing the various stages of construction throughout its lifetime. Viewing from the first floor is essential to see the full grandeur of the floor. The surrounding galleries are... More

This is basically the remains of a Roman villa, under cover, surrounded by some artifacts, and a short film. Not the eassiest place to get to (via small country lanes), and very pricey for what it is.

The history of this Roman villa is well presented, and the mosaic is attractive and interesting. They bring out quite a bit about the likely lives of the inhabitants.

Came here last year and forgot to review. Yes it is in an ugly warehouse, yes it is closed to touching, and yes it does aim at children, but that is where the majority of guests come from, school trips. I for one was impressed how much it has evolved since I was a kid. Very modern with good factual... More

Lullingstone is a site I had wanted to visit for years but, not living anywhere close, such a visit had to wait until we were in the area, which was seldom the case. Until now. So, we grasped the opportunity with both hands earlier this month. However, on finally finding it (it is not well-signposted from Swanley), we were appalled... More

This villa is impressive from close-up but as far as families are concerned needs children with a bit of imagination to really appreciate it. English Heritage has done as much as it can to bring to life the ruins and the people who built and lived in the villa, and the exhibition is a very good introduction to the idea... More
