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...

Excellent facility, easy to reach, easy to interpret and the children learned a lot. Well presented and clear information. Only downside was limited cafe facilities but a beautiful spot - but if imagination and you could see why Romans settled here nearly 2000 years ago.

Interesting and informative . Good questionnaire for the children.but lights dimmed whilst we walked round as a film was being shown. We would have like to have known about the film before we went in. Nice shop but nowhere to eat.

This was a little off the beaten track, but the effort was well rewarded. Country lanes and driving through river fords to get there, and once inside the covered building it was thoroughly explained and described. Make a day of it and visit the castle ruins near by ( down a lane also not well signposted ) and take a... More

The entrance to the villa (which includes the gift shop) is quite deceptive of the lovely surprise that awaits you as you walk through a door into the the main villa area. Very well presented with interesting displays

My youngest is covering the Romans in History over the next term so this was a must. He loved it and all the activities they have here. He was more than happy to dress up as a Roman and play the Roman puzzle games. It was a bit cold inside but it was February, there is only a very small... More

Thoroughly interesting and well presented display which only highlights the roman ability in building using techniques considered modern 1500 years later.
