Chedworth Roman Villa | Cheltenham

Yanworth, Cheltenham
South West England, United Kingdom
closed on: none
Museum Type: Archaeology

The Chedworth Roman Villa, near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, is one of the most important Roman archaeological sites in Britain.

Discovered accidentally in 1864, the villa is now a National Trust site where the remains on a large farm dating back to the 2nd century BC can be visited. Over a mile of Roman walls,  bathhouses, a water shrine and mosaics of an exceptional relevance can be seen, backgrounded by the fascinating Cotswolds rural landscape. The site has been recently completed by a high-quality new building designed by British practice Feilden Glegg Bradley Studios, adding a new visitor centre and an educational facility to the archaeological ensemble.

At the Chedworth Roman Villa special events and a broad range of learning activities as well as guided tours for adults and children are regularly organized. On site a café provided with an outdoor decking and a shop, specialised in Roman history, are available to the visitors.
