Fodor's Review

Housed within a striking wooden-walled, glass-roofed building 1 mile south of Brading are the remains of this substantial 3rd-century Roman villa, with original walls, splendid mosaic floors, and a well-preserved heating system. The mosaics, depicting peacocks (symbolizing eternal life), gods, gladiators, sea beasts, and reclining nymphs, are a rare example of this type of floor preserved in situ in a domestic building. A new space hosts related temporary exhibitions, and there's also a café at the site.
