Lullingstone Roman Villa provides an insight into Roman Britain, and into the lives of the people who lived at the villa. Book a school visit to Lullingstone to bring the curriculum to life in a fun and engaging way.
PLEASE NOTE: Lullingstone Roman Villa is currently closed for works which will extend through the autumn. The excavated villa is below ground level and can be impacted by moisture levels in the ground. These have been particularly high this year which has caused increased mould growth at the site. The works will improve the environment for the villa and surrounding building. We can recommend visiting nearby Down House instead, or another of our Roman sites such as Richborough Roman Fort.
