With all my appreciation for the effort put in the restoration and protection of what is left - very little, honestly - I cannot be impressed after having visited a good number of Greek and Roman sites around the Mediterranean sea and not only. The...More

Thank you for your comments. Within the context of the Roman Empire the structural features and mosaics here at Chedworth are considered to be some of the finest open to the public in Britain today. Unlike more southern parts of Europe, the British climate dictates...More

We visited this place not knowing what to expect. We joined a talk about the villa and Julian was very informative about the villa. The time flew! There was a school in but they were so well behaved you hardly knew they were there. Lovely...More

Good diagrams and working models make it easy to imagine how the site was used. Good audio guide and good signposting and displays near key features. The mosaics are amazing. A guided tour would have been good - we saw one tour underway and it...More

We returned to visit Chedworth Roman Villa after a previous visit 30 some odd years ago. It was a short but rainy drive from Gloucester to Chedworth by way of a navigation system in the car which I was glad we had. It rained all...More

This was a pleasant visit as we headed home from Barnstaple. Quite extensive with clear views of the site and plenty of information.

Glad we made the time to visit this unique site. Took the guided tour, which provided very detailed and interesting historical information. It gave us a perspective on a certain time in England's history, mainly 360-400 AD.

A fascinating Roman Villa but having said that there was only a limited number of things to do. Food was acceptable without having any outstanding notable features. I reckon that a visit could take less than 2 hours including a snack meal. Check beforehand if...More

It's too far to walk from the Cotswold Way to Chedworth, as the Cotswold Way is further over to the West. If you haven't got a car and want to visit Chedworth specially, you could go by Taxi? Do check beforehand as to when... More
