  • Bit of a strange one this. It's in the middle of a built up area, next to some council offices!. All the signage is back to front from the way you walk in?. The roman mosaics itself is in a very nice building. Which means you can't get a very good look at it. But this is probably for the best as the site seems to be frequented by the local youths. The roman mosaics itself is awesome, just a very strange site.
  • Doesn't cost anything so you might as well have a quick look at it, quite interesting to think there were houses here thousands of years ago.
  • Unexpected location and completely free. You might miss it if you didn't know it was there but definitely well worth a look!
  • Lovely place to go for a few hours and it's completely free. You can get a guild form the main council buildings!!
  • Nice roman exhibit to look at, A couple of picnic tables too.
