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... read more

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

Combine this with Lullingstone Castle and World Gardens and possibly Eynsford Castle and you will have a great day out in the Kent countryside. If you are an English Heritage member, it will be a very inexpensive day too. The villa is very interesting, but as I have often wondered, unlike so many other countries - UK does it really... More

We just happened across this place as we were visiting a local farm shop. Since we were new English trust members, we took the opportunity to visit. It was certainly interesting, but I felt that for me a more fully immersed experience with head phones would have been better. There wad no indcation on when the overhead projector show would...

We decided to visit this attraction as we had a few hours to spare in an afternoon. The directions to it were at best poor and at one point we almost gave up because we were sure we had missed it. However, we did find it. The car park was free (as we are English Heritage members) and the entrance... More

Visited with my partner, it was a good couple of hours to view such well presented and impressively excavated ruins. The video introduction with light show provides a good footing for the remainder of the information around the exhibit.

Lullingstone Roman Villa was discovered in 1939, excavated from 1949 - 1961 and opened to the public in 1963. The ruins (a Roman Villa) are housed in a building that is kept very cold. The ruins are laid out well with a appropriate signage throughout the display. There is a 10 minute (or so) movie that is shown throughout the... More

Wonderful display and informative video help visitors to understand the layout and use of the villa. Hands on exhibits are great for capturing the interest of the littles; including costumes, artifacts etc. Would have liked a slightly better description of how the villa was positioned in regards to the environment as the structure that now covers/protects it does impede your...
