Newport Roman Villa
Isle of Wight, PO30 1HA
This farmhouse, built around 270 AD, reveals some fascinating details about the Roman way of life on the Isle of Wight.
Newport Roman Villa is an excellent example of a winged corridor farmhouse. One wing contains a suite of bathrooms with hypocaust and hot and cold baths.
Many hands-on activities bring the Roman period to life. Visitors can interact with a full-size Roman kitchen, weave a blanket and make a mosaic.
There's also a replica Roman garden and small museum displaying Roman finds from across the Island.
