Roman Painted House, Le Portel Reviews

  • This site really does itself no favours calling itself 'Britain's buried Pompeii' as it really isn't a patch on that particular site. What it does, in it's small and almost wonderfully understated way, is provide a fascinating insight into history - partly the Roman history. I visited this site as part of a school trip back in the late eighties and, at least to me, it appears to have changed very little in the intervening thirty years. It even still has a bulky TV/video combination that itself feels a part of history. Its main concession to the modern, more interactive style of museums are neatly included. You can pick up and feel some artefacts. There are some low children's tables where mosaics can be put together. I must admit to enjoying both activities. The remains themselves - well, as I said, it's nothing compared to Pompeii, but they still provide interest. The chance to step back in time, however, proved wonderful.

  • Many thanks to the young lady at the reception who started conversation about the museum's content and invited to touch touchable staff at the entrance hall, telling about those bones and stones. Respected! Impressed!

  • An interesting and rather unique building that does offer something a bit different from your usual Roman site. The volunteers here are very keen and eager to explain things. If left to read all the signage this is rather dry reading and probably goes into more detail than most visitors would require. There are also a few random items thrown in for some reason such as a medieval knights grave that has no connection with the site.

  • One of Dover's treasure-trove of amazing hidden historical gems. Cheap entrance fee. Must see.

  • An amazing piece of Roman history hidden a full floor under current ground level. Friendly and professional volunteers at hand to answer questions - Even Brian Philps (The lead Archaeologist who discovered the painted house) can be seen volunteering his time here!
