Attraction Information

Lullingstone Roman Villa

Lullingstone is amongst the most outstanding Roman villa survivals in Britain and provides a unique all weather family day out in the attractive Darent Valley in Kent. The villa was created around AD 100 and adapted to suit the tastes and beliefs of its successive wealthy owners eventually reaching its peak of luxury in the middle of the 4th century and thusly it remains. Kids will love trying on the Roman costumes and playing traditional board games from the period, plus they can wonder at the display of artefacts including 2 human skeletons! Eek!

Visitors to the villa today can still study the spectacular mosaics and rare prints that make up the wall paintings, plus explore a vintage heated bath suite and a domestic church. Their special light show brings the villa to life, lighting up areas of the remains as their film reveals how the areas were once used, while extensive galleries display Lullingstone's fascinating collections of Roman artefacts. Another bonus for kids is that many of the artefacts are now accompanied by artwork from award-winning children's illustrator Jane Ray.

You are welcome to bring a picnic to eat in the grounds which have lovely views of the Darent Valley and River Darent. There are seating benches and grassy areas to relax on but there's also a gift shop and a cafe available too. Pushchairs are welcome on site and the local Lullingstone Loop walk is accessible to them.
