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.
