    Nice way to spend a couple of hours
    Very knowledgeable staff on the history of the City. Informative signs, interesting museum, nice little gift shop. I recommend anyone who goes to visit the museum part before the outdoor part as this made the outdoor information boards make more sense. A section was closed for repairs and took us about 1.5 hours.

    ROMAN HISTORY
    Great site, easy to find. Had to pre-book tickets even being members of English heritage because of Covid. Greeted with a very warm welcome of all the staff, a very knowledgeable man ( can’t remember his name) told us about the Roman road which albeit 6 foot down is still under the road you walk across to get to the Roman house, which unfortunately wasn’t open as there is damage on the roof. Information boards dotted around the site. Great visit.

    Inspirational history experience
    Well worth a visit (especially if you are already an English Heritage member) and incredible when you realise that these Roman Baths were built nearly 2 thousand years ago as was part of an extensive Roman city. The useful information boards helped you get the idea of the overall layout of the site and then just let your imagination flow. The recreated Roman House wasn't open due to Covid restrictions but still worth visiting the site which is well looked after and Covid safe.

    Worth Visiting if you are in the area!
    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.

    Nice trip
    First impressions were 'can't believe we booked for this when you can see it all from the road'. Really glad we did book. The information signs around the site are full of interesting information. The site itself is impressive. Unfortunately the roman house was closed due to covid but the doors were open to enable you to see inside. Numbers of people entering the site are restricted so never close to anyone and you could go wherever you wanted. A nice place to visit.

    So interesting!
    Prior to visiting we were completely unaware that there was such a large Roman settlement here. The staff were lovely and the audio tour helped bring the ruins to life. There is a small museum on site, but I would also recommend going to Shropshire Museum to view some of the finds they have discovered so far.

    An interesting hour....
    Plenty of info boards (or audio guide) to help with context. Ruins are remarkable, if not extensive. Reconstructed townhouse can be peered at from outside currently, rather than entered. Time slot tickets encouraged at present too, due to Covid, but distancing was easy. Happy to visit with an EH membership, not sure price / value stacks up otherwise.

    Magnificent wall
    This is a small site so worth combining with something else in the area. Pre-booked tickets required but once on site plenty of space so no issue on social distancing. Some very impressive ruins and very detailed interpretation boards to help you understand the site. No audio guide at present and you can't go in the recreated town house but can look at the rooms from outside. About an hour for the visit.

    Interesting.
    To be honest I was a bit underwhelmed by this place although did find the site interesting, there are plent of information boards explaining how the building once looked. I am sure there is a lot more under the ground nearby, but this exposed area didn't offer much in context. A good place to visit as part of a tour in the area.

    Smaller than expected
    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 archaeological site covering a small part of the Roman City. The audio guide made a positive contribution to the visit as it helped to bring the place to life. There are useful information panels dotted around the site but the audio guide which is free adds to the information. There is a small museum on site which displays a range of Roman remains. There is also a reconstructed Roman homestead on the site.

Nice compact site with a huge piece of wall left. Free for EH members and plenty of well thought out information boards which really gave a feel for the site. I particularly liked the raised area at one end which gave a great view over the hypocaust system used in the bath house.There is a very good recreation of a typical town house on the site of the forum but it is amazing to think what is still under the surrounding fields!
A great place for Roman fans

Enjoyed a really good day here yesterday. The staff were very welcoming and showed genuine interest in our time there.
A great set of ruins that show just how big the Roman baths (leisure centres) were in the cities. With plenty of information boards guiding you around the ruins, really detailing what each room was for.
The Roman villa, which was built during a TV series is very interesting and shows how the civilians lived.
A small but well done museum, with most of the artifacts being shown in Shrewsbury Museum, with a small gift shop on site.
Well worth a visit for anyone interested in this time period
