Chedworth Roman Villa

Chedworth, © Chedworth Roman Villa

Chedworth Roman Villa is a major educational resource with splendid mosaic floors, two bath-houses, latrine, several hypocausts in different styles, a water shrine with running spring and a substantial collection of artefacts. A new education building, decorated in the style of a Roman room with under-floor heating, murals and an authentic kitchen diorama will provide a wonderful backdrop for children to learn about the Villa and Roman life. A site-wide interpretation scheme will bring the Villa alive, using projections, sounds and smells to immerse visitors in a Roman experience to remember. Costumed interpreters will transport visitors back to Roman times demonstrating crafts and cookery. There will be fun hands-on activities for youngsters, including designing mosaics, brass rubbings and making medicine bags to take home.

We offer:

- Guided tours with our resident expert;
- Primary source handling sessions;
- Hands on craft-based activities (dressing-up for KS2);
- Lecture lunches.

We tailor our sessions to meet your needs. If you are investigating a particular theme, or preparing pupils for a coursework or examination topic, let us know in advance so that we can organise the visit to address this.
