Chedworth Roman Villa National Trust Gloucestershire

Details about the venue:

Chedworth Roman Villa is around 10/15 minutes from Cirencester on the “Stow Road” which was the old Roman road which took the Romans to London.  In recent years, they have been working on an exciting five-year summer excavations programme. They now have a modern conservation building provides exceptional access to the extensive mosaic floors, hypocaust systems and bathhouse rooms. And a small museum which houses a range of finds and artefacts from the villa.

The visitor reception, shop, café, and West Range (main mosaics, dining room and bathhouse) are all fully wheelchair accessible, regardless of the weather.  The main site (including access to the museum) is mainly outdoors, and there are slopes, some steps, grass, uneven paths, so bear this is mind if its been raining.  They have a new woodland area which is accessed via a steep path which in wet weather can be quite challenging. We will definitely be going in the summer to explore all the new additions to the venue.  

 

 

 

 

 

One feature which is great on site is the café which serves sandwiches, cakes, snacks, hot and cold drinks and ice-cream, and they also have a shop which offers Roman-themed souvenirs, books and games, as well as seasonal plants and gifts.
