  • Not great in terms of signage. Seen better examples. Enjoyed myself though as it was a lovely sunny day - although that can't be guaranteed  more »
  • A small layby right next to the site ideal for parking if space. Personally think it could do with more than 3 information boards as its just a few wall foundations. Was a nice break to stretch my leg...  more »
  • You can park directly outside and access is through a gate. There are information boards about the site showing how the site looked when it was inhabited 2000-ish years ago. Who knew that back then, C...  more »

  • Car collection & castle were very good, don't bother with the coffee shop, I tipped mine out it was that bad. It's a shame this let's the rest down. Take your own picnic if you want to stay any length of time!
  • Useful to visit as my 8 year old had just learnt about Romans during the last term at school. But not very much there. Its a shame as English Heritage could enhance the site to offer more to members
  • This is very strange, do not mistake it for a big attraction or some such. It is some remains in the middle of a neighbourhood that was being built when they were uncovered. A simple fence separates the exposed fort parts and a handful of plaques from the rest of the town around it.
  • Work on a few roman sites. This is very well kept and get a load of people stop to take photos. The size of the old village was quite impressive and most of the finds are in Norwich museums.
  • As a bit of a history nerd I really enjoyed the quick stop off and wander around. Felt like there could have been more information available? Perhaps smart QR codes on the signs for more info? Other then that exactly what one would expect from an ancient ruin.
