Very good! You can make it a short visit if you want. Was interesting to hear about. You can read about it or you were given audio tapes to listen too. I would recommend them! You learn a lot and they go into more detail about it

A very interesting slice of life in Roman Britain which is very well explained both in the audio guide (included in the admission charge) and the excellent and very reasonably priced guide book. As well as the Roman remains there is a is a town house created in 2010 for a TV programme which adds to the picture of what... More

Visited on a lovely sunny day. There is a charge for entry which allows you into a small indoor museum showing the history of the location, you then go outside and wonder round the site which is around the Roman baths and forum. Take the free audio device for clear and interesting description of the site. There is also a... More

Set in the beautiful and tranquil Shropshire countryside, this place will fascinate and pull you into the history. It's many years since I've been - long before the Roman House was built - and I had forgotten how good a place it is. The people who run the place were friendly and helpful - welcoming you in to their world.... More

I first visited this site many years ago when the dig first started and it was thought to be a small Roman fort, obviously it was later discovered it was a much more extensive area, still much to be uncovered and do not expect it will all be done but what is excavated is very interesting and there is a...

Really enjoyed this site. The audio tour was a great aid - though there were informative plates all around.

This was a great day, it was fascinating to see how the Romans lived so long ago. The audio tour was informative without being boring.

Although very little is left standing what is there is full of history. The audio guide gives details of all the areas and you feel as if you are there in Roman Times. Across the road is a villa which was built several years ago (and subject of a 6 part T.V. serial) which gives a good idea as to... More
