Great Witcombe Roman Villa (English Heritage), Gloucester

Book Tickets Online


The remains of this large and luxurious Roman villa lie in a peaceful setting near the Cotswold Way. Once at the heart of a large country estate, the villa was built about AD 250, and lived in until the 5th century. The remains include a bathhouse complex and perhaps the shrine of a water spirit. Mosaic pavements (preserved within a modern building) hint at villa’s opulence in Roman times.


There about beautiful views from the villa over the surrounding countryside.
