Chedworth Roman Villa - National Trust

Romans at Chedworth

The remains of one of the largest Roman villas in Britain provide a fascinating insight into the period. The site was discovered in 1864 by a local gamekeeper and subsequently excavated. Over a mile of walls survive along with beautiful mosaics, two bathhouses, hypocausts, a water shrine and latrine. Visitors to the museum will discover artefacts from the villa, and an audio-visual presentation brings history to life. We also run Living History events amid our beautiful wooded combe surroundings in the heart of the Cotswolds.
