Chedworth Roman Villa


The remains of one of the largest Roman villas in the country provide a fascinating insight into 4th-century Roman Britain.

The ruins nestle in a wooded combe in the heart of the Cotswolds at Yanworth, near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. The site was discovered in 1864 on the Earl of Eldon's estate by a local gamekeeper, and subsequently excavated by his estate workers. Visitors to the museum will discover artefacts from the villa, and an audio-visual presentation that brings history to life.

Visit the Chedworth website.

Shopping & eating. Our shop is the Roman retail experience! There is a large selection of Roman/archaeological books and classic Roman novels. Light snacks and drinks available in shop or tea tent.

Families & children. Chedworth Roman Villa is ideally suited for children.There is a children's guide, a quiz/trail, family activity packs and family trails.

After visiting Chedworth Roman Villa why not make your way to the Inn at Fossebridge, just a mile down the road, for a drink and a bite to eat.
