As with most Roman ruins in the UK, all there is to see here are the foundations of what was once a fairly large villa. It's interesting and you can find out a bit about the Romans in Orpington, but don't expect Pompeii!

Great little place with lots to do. They offer different activities that young children through to primary school age will enjoy. They offer summer activities too. Worth a visit

A Roman Villa found on the hillside overlooking the valley that is now Orpington. Educational for both young and old.

Amazing to think that in this little backwater of Kent there are such wonderful Roman mosaics. Don't miss the chance to see it.

Limited opening times but worth a visit to this small site housed within its own dedicated buiilding. Popular for school kids on trips during term time though but this didn't stop me being shown around by helpful staff. Nominal entrance fee well worth it.
