Dogs are welcome in the grounds but not in the museum.
Outside there are ramps which give access to view the villa remains, although the site is largely grass with no paths and the ground is uneven, which may make wheelchair use difficult.
Groups are very welcome at Rockbourne Roman Villa. We also offer a fantastic resource for schools studying Roman Britain, which can be tailored to meet the needs of your pupils. Please contact us on 01725 518541 to arrange your booking.
