Found it so interesting. There is a walkway around so you can view all the lovely mosaics and other Roman finds. A cafe is on site. Would recommend it.

A lovely drive past thatched cottages and English country gardens, then windy lanes to this spectacular site. The mosaics, especially the long pavement are breath taking, and so peaceful a place to visit.

Although smaller than Fishborne, I think the mosaics were more intact. The place could benefit from an injection of cash to bring the facilities up to date but as a private concern they have done so well to preserve what is there.

Went along for a spontaneous trip with the kids- 7 and 5 yr olds. The most impressive part were the mosaics as there are several. Feels a bit like a tardis as the display areas are bigger than they look from the outside. Limited onsite...More
