We can offer exclusive access to Newport Roman Villa for school groups on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can bring your classroom ‘bubbles’ and have exclusive access to the site.  Please get in touch to discuss your school’s requirements. You can also review our revised opening times and visitor information.

Our third century Roman villa has some of the best preserved domestic bathrooms in Britain. We can create a bespoke visit to suit the needs of your students but a museum led visit could include the following:

  • A Villa Tour (approximately 30 minutes).

  • Activity Room Workshop (approximately 60 minutes).
  • Roman and Iron Age Armour Talk (to be included in the Activity Room Workshop).
  • Roman pottery making (to be included in the Activity Room Workshop).
