Day Trip Revolutionary Romans!

Revolutionary Romans!

"Home to not one but SEVEN Roman Villas, of which three can be visited today, the Isle of Wight is the perfect destination for those studying the 400-year occupation. "

Situated overlooking Sandown Bay, Brading Roman Villa is one of the finest Roman sites in the whole UK. An award-winning visitor centre and museum offer unique insights into Roman life in Britain, from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology.

Expert child-friendly guides bring fun to the visitor experience, and a craft session at the end making a mosaic coaster to take away rounds off a perfect day out.

Newport Roman Villa was discovered in 1926 when garage foundations were being laid by a nearby homeowner. The site is now preserved and covered, yet sits in the middle of a 19th/20th century residential area. The main features include a well preserved Roman bath suite complete with underfloor heating (hypocaust).

Combley Roman Villa is a farmstead buried until 1910 when it was initially excavated, and then reburied to protect it. However, the ground above is marked out to show the extent of the buildings. A nearby interpretation barn contains video and pictorial footage along with a number of other exhibits from the site. Access to Combley Roman Villa is via paid entry to Robin Hill Country Park.
