Summer Days at Chedworth Roman Villa

Children enjoy dressing up at Chedworth Roman Villa

Summer brings with it longer days and warmer weather - the perfect excuse for a fun day out at Chedworth Roman Villa.

With Roman re-enactments, trails, 50 Things and craft activities, we've got something on every day of the holidays.

You can watch the Roman soldiers as they practice their drills (maybe they'll let you have a go!). Why not try your hand at mosaic making or some of our other crafts? We'll also have a trail for you to follow round the site...how much do you know about Roman snails?

Our lovely cafe has sandwiches, cold drinks and ice creams, or your welcome to bring a picnic and relax on the grass, or use the picnic tables in the lower courtyard and play hopscotch with the family.

We'll have guided tours and audio tours available every day, and don't forget our costumed interpreters! Lady Octavia, Censorinus, Gaia, Appian, Thomas Margetts, Dr Quintus and James Farrer will be around over the holidays and will be happy to talk to you about life at Chedworth Roman Villa. Gaia will also be doing special dyeing and cooking demonstrations for a real taste of Roman life.

Keep an eye out for our summer planner with a full list of all activities.
