    We are interested in Roman History - so drove to Caernarfon to see this site. It is a small Roman fort and you can see the foundations of the barracks. It is a free site - but there is no information ...  more »

  • A local pointed out that some houses have been built over one end of the visible settlement. It is an awful shame that modern society can't respect these impressive landmarks. I guess one day we'll have flats in Caernarfon Castle. Still, the remaining area is well kept - I didn't go into the facility itself but it all looks and feels Roman. According to one of the lcoals I met they also stole some of the stone to build the castle. That's not the fault of any living person though!
  • There's very little to see. Just the outlines of where the walls would have laid. Seemed to be a visitor's center but must have been closed for lunch. Worth a quick look, but no more than ten minutes.
  • Fascinating Roman ruins, but no real interpretation. The visitor center is closed
  • Interesting to see the layout of some of a Roman fort although lacking in a guide to various buildings and their uses. More plaques and signs would have helped to portray the life of a Roman fort.
  • There needs to be more information outside, we had little idea what we were looking at so it didn't really come alive for the kids
