really special place that is _almost_ a must see!

we looked forward greatly to seeing the mosaic but found it a bit difficult to see clearly (with our ageing eyesight) due to the low lighting (understandable) and the nearest... read more

I remember coming here 50 years ago before the villa was covered by a building. It is now much improved and well cared for by English Heritage. Throughout the tour there are excellent and informative boards explaining what you can see plus artefacts but not so many that you feel swamped. Children were making great use of their worksheets whilst... More

The car park is a short, flat walk to the entrance. There are toilets (basic) near the car park. The entrance area is modern and we were welcomed warmly on a wet Friday in October. We arrived at 10am when it opened and I think that this is the key as later there were lots of folk and children (half... More

Whilst the Roman Villa is virtually a must-see, it really is good to understand Roman houses and mosaics. English Heritage haven't done much other than put a building around the site. Whilst the entrance fee isn't a lot £6.60 (without gift aid) the information boards don't tell you much as they are aimed at children (who were running up and... More

we looked forward greatly to seeing the mosaic but found it a bit difficult to see clearly (with our ageing eyesight) due to the low lighting (understandable) and the nearest balcony being a few metres away; otherwise the presentation of the site and the story behind it was excellent, very engaging and informative

This must be one of the best preserved Roman villas in the country. It wasn't easy to find as using the postcode in our Satnav, took us to a golf course. It is off the main road, down several narrow lanes. But once you find it, it is well worth the effort of getting there. There is a short introductory... More

Fantastic attraction for both young and old. Please if you go watch the short information film first it puts everything into perspective. Kids and us older kids can learn a great deal about Roman life styles and the kids can play Roman games and try on Roman attire, so can the adults if so inclined. A marvellously preserved mosaic and... More

This is an excavation that has been developed into a great exhibition. Lots of displays for children, but a lot of information and interest for adults. Good introductory film, but only shows hourly. Shop only has snacks.

I absolutely loved this visit. It's great whatever the weather. There is plenty of information and educational items. It's not a whole day visit we went round in about an hour and a half. The only thing I was a bit disappointed in was when trying to watch the informational video there were a lot of school children making a... More

Although I live fairly close to this site and have an immense interest in British History, I had never visited Lullngstone Villa before until August 2015. After parking in the free car park if you visit the villa our quite large group consisting of all ages approached the payment desk. I was very pleased with out reception, the staff pointing... More

As a member of English Heritage, I decided to pay Lullingstone Roman Villa a visit for the first time in 20+ years today!! Upon arrival I was greeted by a nice gentleman in the shop where you enter and exit the site. His humour was very good and as a member of English Heritage you get free parking in the... More
