    It can be hard to recreate in your imagination what a Roman settlement was like in its heyday but English Heritage do a splendid job here with the audio guides and signage.  more »

    Visited on a chilly, wet August day and in spite of the weather spent a very enjoyable, informative afternoon. Had no idea how extensive the ancient city was and it was so interesting learning more. S...  more »

    One of those rare places where you can almost sense the presence of those who lived here all those centuries ago. This was possibly because there were very few other visitors there when we arrived (na...  more »

  • Welcomed by a staff member dressed in Roman attire who was helpful. There is a museum with an overview of the Romans and the settlement in Wroxeter as well as plenty of interesting archaeological finds. Outside you walk around the numbered boards overlooking the site and the free audio guide gives you more insight and history in a light and humerous way. A great way to spend an hour or two.
  • Fascinating ruin. Surprising how much survives and there's a very good exhibition and audio trail that tells you all about it. Well worth a visit.
  • Well preserved Roman basilica and baths foundations and a modern reconstruction of a Roman house using building techniques from the period. The audio tour was very good and the staff friendly and helpful.
  • Lovely place. Really do love it. Fascinating. Love the reconstructed house too.
  • I remember going here as a child on a schol trip and enjoyed it very much, so I decided to take my husband and children here again last year and we all thought it was great. Most definitely a good value, fun day out and learn so much about the way in which Roman life here in Shropshire was like. We will certainly be going again in the future.
