Interesting insight into Roman times
Sep 2021 • Couples
It is amazing how much of the mosaic had survived and how much can be learnt from the remains of this villa.
The information boards do what they say on the tin - provide facts and background.
Well presented and definitely worth the visit.

Well worth a visit
Sep 2021
A very enjoyable time at a well preserved Roma Villa.
Information boards were packed full of facts that were suitable for both adults & children.
The venue offers a children's trail and some hands on exhibits, that make everything a bit more real for children.
A very clean & tidy venue and the staff are really friendly.
In our opinion this is not a full day visit.
The toilets in the car park were very clean.

The short video is well worth watching

Well wort a visit
Aug 2021 • Couples
The Roman villa is protected in a building to preserve the integrity of the find, so even on days when the weather isn’t at its best it’s a good place to visit.

The displays are well laid out, and the short film is very interesting and educational.

The car park costs £3 but time is not limited so you can also walk up to Lullingstone Castle and World Garden from there.

Well worth the visit.

Nice half day visit

An interesting morning out. Easy to get to by train (Eynsford) and a 15 min walk to the villa (don't follow the road sign to the villa though - that's the long way round!) Very friendly and helpful staff. Had booked in advance to ensure we got in. Limited refreshments available but fine for coffee/tea/soft drinks and cookies and muffins and seating was available outside. Not a big site but very interesting ruins and information boards, along with items such as pottery or metal works dug up there. There's a short film that talks you through the history and the development of the villa (and its discovery) - done in a nice way lighting up the relevant section of the ruins. There are the remains of a floor mosaic too. There's a small shop at the site, which is English Heritage, but from memory only one toilet. Car parking is available outside and you can walk along the Darrent Valley Path to Lullingstone Castle and on to Lullingstone Country Park - probably a 30 min walk - very pretty scenery. Worth a visit if you're in try area.

Well preserved Roman Villa and excellent information boards
Jul 2021
We spend an interesting couple of hours here. The Villa itself is covered by a building to protect it. It is fascinating to think that this Villa has been here in some form for over 1,600 years. The 'rooms' are clearly labelled and there are interesting wall displays detailing facts and information about life in Roman times and how the rooms would have been used. There is a short film which gives good background information. Some interesting stuff for kids to do too, to keep them engaged. I liked finding out about the excavation side of this site. A nice English Heritage shop too. There are a few benches outside but only one picnic table - perhaps a few more would be good!

First visit to this place. Well done to English Heritage for a really informative attraction. Fully undercover you get to experience an exceptionally preserved Roman villa and artefacts.

Roman Villa
Sep 2020
These are the remains of a Roman Villa on the North Downs in Kent. Accessed by a small country Lane from Eynsford village, when you get there there's a good sized car park. The remains of the villa are now inside a purpose built building, so you can visit comfortably in any weather. All that's left of the structure are the usual 1m or so high foundations and you get to see it all via walkways above the villa. There are plenty of information boards explaining what each of the rooms would have been used for and every 30 minutes or so a video plays on a big screen that details more of the villa's history (when the video plays, the lights are dimmed in the hall which is, to be honest, rather inconvenient). The highlight is probably the almost intact floor mosaic which is really impressive. Currently, masks need to be worn inside, but we're all used to that now. The site is managed by The English Heritage, so free entry and free parking for members.

Excellent display

The reason for 5 stars is the sheer effort put into this place and what could be 5/10 mins turns into a good 1 hour if not longer. Impressive how you walk around and on two floors. Car park. Gift shop. Simple.
