Brading Roman Villa

About

Have a day out with a difference at Brading Roman Villa. Visit one of the finest Roman sites in the UK, the award winning Visitor Centre and Museum offers a unique insight into Roman life in Britain from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology.

Bring history to life with mosaic making and shield decorating in the popular family craft area. You can also relax Roman-style and borrow games, such as quoits, to play in the grounds. Enjoy a picnic too — the Roman Villa's popular on-site cafe is more than happy to provide children’s lunch bags. 

From a galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars and the silver screen... This Spring, for the first time ever on the Isle of Wight, the Galactic Empire meets the Roman Empire! 'May the Toys be with you' is one of the UKs finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters. See the exhibition at Brading Roman Villa, 16th March – 11th June, Open daily 10am-4pm. Exhibition Only tickets now available, see www.bradingromanvilla.org.uk for details.
