Fantastic example and feel for a Romano British Villa and garden. few walls survive above 12 inches but the floors and layout give a really good idea of the shear scale of its once huge complex. Worth watching the 13min film!

Very impressive. Much larger than I expected. The mosaics are quite exceptional. Good visitor centre. Very helpful staff. Lots of interesting things for the children to see and do.

Had a very interesting trip to this place - I've lived here for years and never been! The mosaics are beautiful, and I loved imagining what it must have been like in Roman times. I learnt a lot about history and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a lot of children visiting which did make it a bit noisy at times,... More

You need to be interested in history to get a lot from this, but the mosaic floors are well worth seeing if Roman history interests you, not a lot else to detain you for long

Great day out here with the kids that made learning Roman history fun. The sense that this could have been missed if not for some determined archaeologists is amazing! We came during half term so there was a special Roman army week on with great number of fun activities for the kids to get involved with. A must visit!

Wifey and I visited on a Saturday morning. We parked in its large car park and visited the café first of all (separate building) where we enjoyed a light snack at reasonable prices. Upon arrival at the main entrance desk, we were greeted by friendly staff who suggested we visit the small cinema first all to watch a 10 minute... More

A fascinating insight into Romano-British history.that is beautifully presented with enthusiastic staff. The garden is also well worth looking at as it gives an insight into different gardening styles.

A lovely place to visit and a real step back in time. It could give you an interest in Roman mosaics and send you further afield to the Mediterrean civilisations.

Since my last visit many years ago this attraction has been upgraded and expanded out of all recognition. the preserve mosaics are described in detail by the volunteer archeologists giving an insight into the use of the different villa rooms and their uses. The variation of floor level and the mosaic design is adequately explained as is the use of... More
