  • Our visit gave us an insight of how people used to live within the Roman city. Not a huge site, as a lot is still buried under farm land. There is audio equipment available. A museum on site. Also a c...  read more »

  • The roman city is a fairly small site with plenty to look at including a reconstructed villa. The audio guide was interesting and straight forward. We combined our trip with a visit to the nearby Roma...  read more »
  • thought provoking, but small, the experience here is to think of it as only one step along the whole old A5, there are remnants all along watling street, hidden behind golf courses, crumbling foundations and sleeping under fields. This is just a little tip poking out through the fields, Roman day is a great experience, if your dropping by and expecting the marvels of Ravenna in the UK you'll be bitterly dissapointed. This is an encampment, an outpost of a superpower, that is its enchantment, to try and make out this is somehow a basis of Roman life seems to me to try and make out the British camps in in Swaziland are an example of how British life was led in the 19th Century, doesn't really do Celtic Britain or Rome Justice.
  • i loved it when i went there it was like travelling back in History...
  • Great site. Although most of the city still remains underground, the baths have been excavated and provide plenty to see. The 'Old work' one of the tallest freestanding Roman ruins still extant, is quite impressive. The audio tour included in the price is a great addition, so too is the small museum on site, explaining Wroxeter's significance in the Roman world. The site also boasts a reconstructed townhouse, which was built using original Roman techniques.
  • I've been every year for 5 years with my year 3 class, we do the Roman Experience and they've loved it. Great staff and perfect for what I needed. Big thumbs up.
  • Great example of a roman city
