Be our honoured guest; walk in the footsteps of Romans and experience life in this grand Roman villa

Chedworth Roman Villa was home to some of the richest people in the country during its heyday in the 4th century.

Visit the intriguing ruins of one of the largest Romano-British villas in the country.

Marvel at some of the amazing inventions brought to this country by the Romans - including mosaics, bathhouses, latrines and even underfloor heating.

Get up close to the mosaics, some of which were excavated just this year, on our state of the art walkways.

Walk in the footsteps of the Victorian gamekeeper who unearthed the first clues to what lay beneath an ordinary field in the heart of the Cotswolds in our newly refurbished museum.

Reflect on your visit with a glorious walk through the surrounding woodland and don't forget to treat yourself to something delicious in our new café.
