I wasn't sure how long I could entertain 5 and 7 year old children on my own here. It far exceeded my expectations. It is a ruin that was discovered in 1949. There are excellent boards all the way round giving plenty of information. I did not buy a guide book and had plenty to tell the children. They were... More

Visited on a thoroughly wet bank holiday weekend, and it worked out well as most of the villa is undercover, although there are some remains outside. The visitor centre is located in a picturesque river valley and accessed and exited through a well stocked shop. There are some snacks and cakes on offer, and hot and cold drinks, but if... More

Upon arrival, it looks like a warehouse/industrial unit, but once inside, the lit up remains instantly grab your attention - WOW! Very interesting displays, and things for children to do to. Not the biggest of English Heritage attractions, but it has been nicely done, and well worth a visit.

Came here with the children. The villa is well preserved and there are a few things to do, such as dress up as Romans but there could be more. Staff are very helpful though.

The Roman Villa is interesting, I learnt new things from visiting it. The surrounding area is gorgeous as well, saw some people walking from the village to the villa - a perfect activity :) The Villa is children-friendly with activities, games and nice drawings explaining the way the Romans lived, the gods they worshipped etc. The place has also a...

I went here with the school and have been back many times, it is a beautiful slice of Roman history, even the drive there is gorgeous. Listen to the tour on your headphones and learn all you can about this fascinating place

Given the lack of actual building we foind this to be a very interesting place to visit. The staff were friendly and informative and the villa itself well preserved, including a lovely mosaic floor. There is also a 2000 year old skeleton and many other interesting artifacts on show. This is a great place to visit for all ages.

The Roman Villa at Lullingstone is interesting, informative, child friendly, and definitely worth a trip to see it. A half day out at most but there are lots of other interesting places around too
