“Well cared for but without signage. Frustrating.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We had hoped that this site might reflect the work that has gone into a similar site at Wrexham (to the east and near the Welsh border), however this was not the case. A well cared for and free to enter site but with little or no signage or interpretation.

“Roman remains”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Before the Normans came to build their Castle the Romans were in Caernarfon and built this huge encampment which left a mark on Welsh culture to this day. It is a pity that many tourists are not aware of this very important Roman site with a museum in Caernarfon. Well worth a visit.

“Roman Caernarfon”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Shame but funding stopped for places like this, not much to see and most relics removed from show? The gentleman we spoke to was most disappointed, run by volunteers I think.

“Closed permanetly for now”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The museum at segontium used to be excellent but the housed exhibits have been all placed in deep storage in Caerdidd.
The grounds are all open but there is only one interpretive sign on the side of the old building.
street parking
Caernarfon council are thinking about reviving this exhibit

“What an attraction!”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Segontium is a beautiful place, and displays as very informative. One feels that they are in the Roman period.
Parking was adequate, and one can imagine that, when it is busy, parking will a issue, especially for the disabled traveler.
As General Douglas MacArthur said, "We will be back!"
