All the magic has gone. All the Roman ghosts of gone. Only English Heritage manage to do this, and I'm not sure how they do it. I think it is the perfect fencing around the sight or the distracting over sized boards for kids, or the lighting or all of the above. Just leave things alone English Heritage and maybe... More

The villa walls are preserved to a height of a few feet, though this is enough to still see and understand the villa floor plan and to see the amazing mosaic in the main hall. The range of finds from the excavation are on display and there is a video presentation. A little expensive for what it is, but really... More

I found it a bit boring, but if you are really interested in that type of thing it is probably very good. However, walks around there are lovely.

Well presented and under cover if the weathers not good, Lullingstone Roman Villa transports you back to a time when the Romans ruled Brittania. What always strikes me is the luxury aspect of their lifestyle, the villa had baths, heated floors and heated walls. The remains, which are mainly dwarf stone walls that would have supported a timber building are... More

The well-preserved remains of this Roman Villa are beautifully explained and displayed by English Heritage. We spent about an hour here and found it very interesting.

Great place and a walk back in history. Its interesting with each stone telling a story and its great to be part of history without being there. It is great to reflect on this and how the rooms would have looked. I found it inexpensive and its great for the young to learn. Its also disabled friendly. Worth the visit... More

We visited as part of our English Heritage membership and found it interesting to have a look around for about an hour, although not for much longer. There were examples of mosaics, various artefacts and information about what the rooms would have looked like such as bath rooms, kitchens etc. I am not sure we would have paid to get... More

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
