Worth Visiting if you are in the area!
Jul 2021
This Roman site is worth visiting if you are in the area but there is not enough above ground to make a long journey worthwhile. We were staying nearby so it was. The audio guide is very useful and brings the different parts of the site to life.

The Work and the hypocaust are impressive and most of the photographs agree. Unfortunately the replica Roman house, built as part of a TV series, was closed when we visited but the museum was open.

The history of the area is quite complex so it is worth spending some time looking around the museum.

Small
Nov 2021 • Friends
Small but interesting. Most of the stone was taken and used in other buildings centuries ago. What remains is a bit of the wall and bath house floors. A one room museum and a tiny shop. Nice that dogs are allowed and some picnic benches available for use. I live within 10 miles but I wouldn't like to travel much further.

Nice Roman Site
Oct 2021 • Solo
A lovely and welcome site. Well presented with an interesting small museum. The recreated Roman town house is impressive for the context it offers

Really interesting
Sep 2021 • Couples
Stopped here to break up the journey and really glad we did. The staff were really friendly and showed us to the museum. There’s an audio tour you can scan with phone which is interesting to listen to, as it was a sunny day we sat on one of the benches in the site and listened to it.

The reproduction house was interesting too, Craig was more than happy to answer questions.

A nice place to visit for a few hours.

Total waste of space
Aug 2021
Disgusted. Travalled two and a half hours to get there. Their site specifically says no need to book but on arrival at 10:30 were told next entry was 11.30 but "first come first served" and better to come back in the "afternoon" - no explanation given and no attempt to offer a place on the next entry time. Given that it is predominantly an open air site this is unjustifiable. Whoever is setting these rules doesn't deserve to be in a job. Zero customer care. The staff on site clearly haven't a clue what it says on the website. I will NEVER return. I suggest no-one else goes. At most there were 10 cars in the car park, some of which were clearly staff so any claim of overcrowding is utterly false.

Great piece of history
Aug 2021 • Family
Really great place to explore for a couple of hours. They have the large ruins, a mock Roman villa and a museum with some small finds.
Overall, well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Interesting site, clear explanations of the layout and interesting museum
Aug 2021
We were in the area and a short detour brought us to Wroxeter. We hadn't booked, which could have been a problem, but they had capacity for us, so we were able to make the visit. The main attraction is the remains of the absolutely massive bath complex, and the 'Roman' Town House, imagined for a Channel 4 programme some years ago. Very enjoyable.

School trip
Jun 2021 • Family
We took our class who had been studying about the Romans here as a school trip. It is very cheap to visit but there is not that much there. Unfortunately part of the attractions (the townhouse) was shut.
We split the day into 2 - a tour around the site with a guide (who was very informative!) and then we went into the museum (which was very small) then we had our own activities in the afternoon that we had arranged. It is out in the open so if rain is forecast, make sure you are prepared!
Staff were very helpful throughout the whole visit.

Smaller than expected
Jul 2021
Easy to book online. Plenty of parking & good information given on arrival.

Wroxeter Roman City was much smaller than we had anticipated and part of it was not accessible. The museum was very informative.

Time spent - about an hour.

An interesting site run by lovely people!
Jun 2021 • Couples
We spent around 90 minutes exploring Wroxeter Roman City. It is a really interesting site with impressive artifacts. The museum is small but filled with lots of history. An easy walk around, pop some good trainers on for the mixed terrain. The staff were lovely, super friendly and knowledgeable! Our dogs were made to feel very welcome and fussed over, they had a great time.
