About Us

Situated overlooking Sandown Bay on the Isle of Wight, Brading Roman Villa is one of the finest Roman sites in the UK.

Our award-winning Visitor Centre and Museum offer unique insights into Roman life in Britain from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology. It’s a great day out rain or shine.

The heritage site is owned and operated by the Oglander Roman Trust (Registered Charity 1128326)
