Wales was the furthest outpost of the Roman Empire. In AD 75, the Romans built a fortress at Caerleon that would guard the region for over 200 years. Step back in time at the National Roman Legion Museum and explore life in a far-flung outpost of the mighty Roman Empire.

  • Lots of information and artefacts to see, the coffin (see photos) was especially interesting. Just lacks more interactive information, but as it is free to enter can't really complain.
  • Great little village with interesting roman ruins and museum. Cheap food in the bull pub.
  • We stopped in here to break up the journey from London to Llanelli, and have to say we were impressed, free entry with very nicely put together exhibits and gift shop. You can get around the whole place in hour, an ideal stop of point if you are planning other adventures in the area.
  • Interesting place if you like history and it's free
  • Small but informative museum. Worth a visit because it's free to enter and is a nice place to spend half an hour to an hour in.
