  • The outlines of three or four Roman buildings, in a park like setting. The locals use it as a dog park.
  • 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.
  • Not much to see really. Minimally excavated foundations with some information. Worth seeing if you are passing.
  • Easy to miss as the entrance is from a lay by. It could do with a large signboard by the roadside.
  • If you like historic sites you'll be interested. But for me a few stones and a limited info board was a bit of a let down.

Where to stay in Great Yarmouth

Stay along the city's main pedestrian promenadeto be near the main attractions. A B&B near the central beach, close to the mouth of the promenade, is an ideal spot for views and access to attractions. For a quiet stay, consider lodging farther inland in one of the renovated Victorian buildings.
