We visited earlier this week, I didn't find any problems finding the place as I had read other reviews saying it was poorly signed, it does have the brown tourist signs in place, but access is along a long narrow road with passing places. There is a charge for parking, unless you are EH members then you are given a... More

it has all been said elsewhere - very few actual display items, poor signage inside and out, charging for car parking is an insult, bearing in mind the hefty entrance fee. This is another example of Roman history dumbed down for kids with togas, swords, build-your-own-villa/mosaic, etc. I am sure that an enormous number of finds were made on this... More

A well preserved and presented roman villa. It is well interpreted with plenty of information to give you a good understanding of what the site is all about. There is a really nice, large floor mosaic and you are able to access the upper level by lift or stairs to view the layout of the villa and there is also... More

I used to get taken to the Roman Villa a lot as a kid and always enjoyed it. I went back recently and had a new found appreciation for the place. It's a great place to see and the information provided on the way round, including the film they show, brings the Villa to life and gives you a realistic... More

English Heritage really have got it right here. As home educators it was a perfect place to go. My daughter enjoyed filling in their worksheet and our 6 year old had fun playing the Roman board game. The information was educational and not overbearing. Staff very friendly and amenable.

Lullingstone is very well preserved example of a Roman villa, although of course a ruin, remaining only at foundation level. It is a well-documented illustration of how they lived during that era.

Was brought here as a child, and the place is still as magical as I remember it. The whole setting is very pretty and the whole site is set out in an informative way. My kids are still very young but they were fascinated.

I agree with some comments about the confusing parking directions. The exhibition is very good and well preserved. As with ruins you have to be interested in them before you go. Taking young children in "cold" would be a big turn-off I think.

Spent one day visiting this site and found it to be a very interesting place to visit. First time visiting any typeof Roman ruins anywheres. No direction signs for entering car parking area. Must have watched a dozen autos have to backup after trying to enter the exit drive. Needs to have walk ways over the villa ruins to offer... More
