My husband and I rode the bus from Ryde, and the driver kept us from making an early departure, saving us a LOT of walking time. If you are going by bus, tell the driver where you're going. We walked maybe 1/2 mile to the...More

The preserved mosaics are claimed to be the best preserved example of their type in Europe, and we wouldn't disagree with that claim. The guides confirmed that most of the mosaics are still in situ, and have not been disturbed. Their state of preservation is...More

Would not have believed it that in a side room there is a wonderful collection of puppets: YES, Puppets. This for me made the visit worth it though I think that the entry cost of £8.75 each (and this is for seniors) is way too...More

A really well preserved site. The volunteers that help run it were extremely knowledgable and seemed to enjoy sharing their knowledge. Well laid out, and something to do on a rainy day, as it is all undercover. There are activities for children, that may help...More

I traveled by local bus and the friendly driver indicated where to alight. It was a short walk down Old Morton Lane. The villa is housed in a Lottery funded timber building, so that it is shielded from the elements. What a gem! What a...More

The Brading Roman Villa (PO36 0PH on The Isle of Wight) is the recently excavated Roman in Brading. It's all under cover (good we weather attraction) and presented to a very high standard. It's even more remarkable that until fairly recently the foundations and mosaics...More

The Roman villa itself is quite extraordinary to look at and amazing how much of the mosaic floor has remained intact over the best part of two millennia. It’s certainly worth a visit. We were however somewhat bewildered by some of the signage! We concluded...More
