  • Very peaceful. Wonderful place to walk around. It is very busy at weekends
  • A great place to visit as part of a local walk. Ideal for parents with young children teaching them about Roman settlement in Britain.
  • We love it here. If you like history, it's great. Good place to walk dogs, but they should be kept on a lead. Pretty church, amphitheater, huge anconeus walls. Fascinating.
  • Not too much to see. May be an interesting work when the weather is better.
  • Fascinating ancient monument. Visit the walls for a walk of about 4 miles or the church of St Mary and the Amphitheatre for a shorter stay.
