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.

Staff, volunteers and visitors all raced to see the North Wing last August, from the moment the first trowel went into the ground. The plan was to remove a series of concrete paths and the archaeologists were surprised by what they found...take a look at their blog, link below.

This year we're half way through a 5 year investigation of the archaeology of the North Wing. Our aim is to gain a complete understanding of what needs to be protected and conserved.

Our 2015 Big dig runs from 17 August - 28 August.
