Great place to go when visiting the area - you get the impression of what it was like in Roman times. The Roman baths are local too which is free entrance plus a small museum. There are plenty of local pubs if you fancy a...More
A great morning walking around Caerleon, and the Amphitheatre. The Amphitheater gives you a real idea of how the Romans used to spend time enjoying them selves.
Great place for a picnic with children as well. Free to enter.
Spent an afternoon exploring the Roman remains and reading the informative supporting information. The amphitheatre doubles up as a venue for outdoor theatre during the summer. Exploring or theatre an amazing experience.
Been meaning to get here for years. Well preserved small amphitheatre similar to one in Romania. We got there 5 minutes before gate was locked so came back again in the morning. Fascinating site. Of course I had to play the ‘my name is Maximus...’...More
A wonderful place to taste bygone days, it brings history within touching distance with no restrictions other than to keep dogs on leads. It's Free, with good parking and never crowded. The Romans knew how to pick a place and this is no exception as...More
Just thinking about the Roman guards and military standing around this place is pretty exciting -- if you enjoy history. Then, there are many that think that this could be the place of the storied (fabled?) Camelot and King Arthur's Roundtable. It is worth visiting...More
This is quite a significant piece of Roman architecture standings proudly in a green field very close to the town centre and with parking right next to it so good easy access.
The theatre is surrounded by hills on either side one of which a...More

There aren't any picnic tables but as the car parking is very close (adjacent) then it's possible to take your own picnic chairs and table should you wish. Lots of grassy area to pitch up with chairs or lay blanket on the ground. Additionally Caerleon has a lovely cafe in the fwrrum which is only a 5 minute walk away. You also have the Roman museum you can visit.

Caerleon Amphitheatre Barracks and Baths (6 Replies)
Hello. I am going to beautiful Britain in 2 days and plan on seeing Hadrian's Wall and Bath since my 18 year-old loves classical history. I might also want to take her to the Caerleon Amphitheatre Barracks and Baths in southern Wales but haven't found that much info on it. Anyone been there and what are your impressions. Also, I found a couple museums which feature Roman Britain (such as one in the Cotswolds and another in Wales). Has anyone been to any of these? The bottom line is...More

As luck would have it, we were just in Caerleon this past Monday. Although not an expert on Roman ruins, I thought it was just great. The extensive baths excavation (pool and frigidarium) itself is totally enclosed by a large, impressive modern building with the excavation well lighted with a broad array of models and audio/visual aids to give you a very real perspective of what it was like to exercise and relax as a Legionaire in the II Augusta Legion. Next door is a very interesting...More
