  • There is a good carpark but involves a bit of walking to fort but well worth the time for the view over the Waveney and Yare valleys.  more »
  • If you've not been to many roman forts this is a good start but it's not as detailed as some others in England and therefore was a little bit of a let down for me.  more »

  • Very well kept for such a small attraction. Boards are as per English Heritage high standard. And even with the massive urban sprawl this little place really gives you a feel of the place. A comprehensive visit with GPS mapping and board reading and pretending your a Roman Auxillary will not take longer than an hour. Good place for a break.
  • For anyone who likes history, it sure is a nice place to visit! We very much enjoyed it.
  • Beautifully presented and maintained, lovely piece of history and clean!
  • Great place for Roman history buffs - don't be surprised at the size It's quite a little gem of ruins
  • Very interesting site with lots of history. Information available is a good read. However, the surfaces are uneven and so not suitable for people unsteady on their feet or wheelchair users. The site is also only partly excavated.
