Family fun: Visit the villa

Visit Kings Weston Roman Villa for a day of family friendly fun.

Explore where Romans used to live right on Bristol’s doorstep and discover amazing mosaic floors, underfloor heating and the only Roman bath suite in Bristol.

Meet archaeologists from the museum, find out how the villa was discovered and investigate some fabulous finds from Roman times.

Michael Loader, our resident storyteller, will also be onsite to tell us some Roman-inspired tales. Stories run at 11.30 am, 12.30 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm.

Stories and craft residencies: 

We’re pleased to welcome master crafter, Jem Dick and storyteller supremo, Michael Loader to the Blaise team this year. Both residencies have been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of Bristol’s Museums, Galleries and Archives.
