Visiting Chedworth Roman Villa: What to expect

Chedworth North Range view

The site and Visitor Centre at Chedworth Roman Villa are open. We’ve introduced advanced booking to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays. However, where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking may not always be necessary. In this article you’ll find everything you need to know about what's open and what to expect from your visit.

When you arrive 

  • If you have pre-booked, please have your ticket to hand and show it to any member of staff at the visitor reception. If you are a member with a booking, we'll also ask for you to show your membership card. 
  • Please arrive within your booking slot (e.g between 11 - 11.30am). If you arrive early we may not be able to admit you early due to needing to limit numbers of visitors at the property. 
  • If you’re more than 10 minutes late for your arrival slot then entry will be at the discretion of the property team.
  • Depending on how busy the property is, if you arrive without a pre-booked ticket admissions it not guaranteed. 
  • Afternoons are usually quieter than mornings. 


Staying safe 

  • To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. Look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.
  • If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.
