Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited today. Simon on reception should win salesman of the year. He managed to sell us a years membership, with a big discount thrown in. Plus a guided tour by his colleague. What an amazing place to discover. If you're a history nerd like us you'll love it. If you're expecting a fully redecorated Roman villa you might be disappointed but for us it was worth it. Thanks to the friendly and welcoming staff
.ps the toilets were spotless.

Plus Eynsford is a lovely place to visit and walk round

Fascinating site in a beautiful setting. A must-see if you have an interest in Roman Britain. Kids were entertained by and enjoyed the quiz sheets. Mosaic floor is wonderful. Guidebook is a particularly good read.

If you come from the Mediterranean, like I do, then you've definitely seen roman foundations of a building, or even played inside it as a kid.
I am a history nerd and I had to see what was this all about however, I was hugely disappointed. I've been to Stobi in N Macedonia where literally I walked amongst the roman walls, rooms and around at least 20 mosaics - all for £1.20 entrance.
The fact that the UK manages to make everything out of nothing is the reason i didn't give them 1 star, but 2.

Just past Eynsford High Street, Kent, UK, Is this lovely,important Roman Villa.
It`s owned by English Heritage and
I paid £10 per adult plus £3 for car park (Jan 2023 prices).
Everything is under roof , So no matter the weather.
This beautiful Villa with still visable rooms to see and notice boards tell you
What rooms would have been there, Plenty of artifacts and i love the notice
Boards that told you all about the begining of the Villa to the end.
There is a upstairs and that has more artifacts, Also what materials the Villa was Made out of, and who found the Villa back in past. There is a delightful short film all about the Villa, as the film progresses
Each room is lit up as the film goes thru the ages.
The staff were lovely as i chatted to them and there is a tea/coffee machine in the
Gift Shop, With toilets inside and out..

This is a really interesting place to visit, don't go expecting Pompeii, it's nowhere near that scale but still pretty impressive for Roman ruins in this country. There's a film telling you the history and knowledgeable guides on hand to share information. Well worth a visit, especially if you're an English Heritage Member.

Have visited this particular English Heritage property many times over the years but always find something new to discover. The film told when it was rediscovered, which I learnt on this visit.
As always the staff are just so friendly and so knowledgeable.

Over priced, dark, could not see the Villa clearly, freezing cold & outdated presentation of facts along the walls.
Went today with my Grandson, son & husband after a gap of 30 years. Last time the Villa was outside behind glass when you could see everything. As I have stated for some reason it is now housed in a cold, dark, warehouse structure with a few plaques stating various facts.
To say my family were disappointed is an under statement.
It costs, with a donation for adults £9.90 & children £6. In my opinion this is over priced for the experience.
The gentleman in the till did not even ask if we would like to gift aid our entrance cost & when I offered this he said ‘too late processed the payment.’ Which considering his colleague was saying how English Heritage needs money was bizarre.
We were looking forward to it especially with our grandson as he is now becoming interested in history. His question sheet was, in my opinion, poorly laid out & even harder to find the answer from the out dated displays. The board he was given to write on was flimsy plastic which bent when he attempted to answer the questions.
The only hands on for children was a game which resembled backgammon with a page of instructions on how to play!!
How are we to encourage young people to explore our history when they experience the above.
Then as per most museums you have to walk through the shop to exit the complex being faced with expensive tat. Small, poorly made wooden sword £9.50 suggest it would have cost less than £1 to make Yes understand E H have to make a profit but exploiting parents & grandparents as their child want something, especially in this financial climate is totally unacceptable. So an hours experience cost £35.70 plus gift shop.
How can you expect parents to take their children to places of historical interest, for one hour, in an uncomfortable environment, poor displays at this price.

We visited with my ten year old history buff, who enjoys the romans. And it was fab. Lots of information, one way system and the short informational video brings the whole villa to life.

The activities that are still around were interesting.
