  • My wife and I drive down the winding lane to this famous Roman site on a sunny midweek day in March only to find that it is closed during the week until April. What a disappointment for us (and a coup...  more »

  • We are quite used to seeing Roman remains but this one exceeded our expectations. It is huge and located very prominently. Parts of the surrounding walls are still really tall. The site was occupied o...  more »

  • Very good English heritage sure to explore and learn. Six pounds or so to get in each adult but does come with a free audio tour which is very good.
  • Pleasant stroll around. It tends to be quiet, so easy to try and pick up the atmosphere of these ruins. Amphitheatre is away from main site.
  • A historically important location, that once contained one of the largest triumphal arches in the Roman empire. It isn't easy to understand the site from the information given on the info boards around the place, but the guidebook (£3.50) is excellent. Twinned with Reculver further up the coast.
  • Very well preserved site. A little expensive for what it is. Information sinage a little tired.
  • Lived near here for almost 30 years and this is the first time I have been here. My only criticism is it isn't advertised anywhere near enough. Keep up the good work.
