“Great for the kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We went a few days before Christmas & there was so much effort put into making it fun for the children! There was a snow machine which kids of all ages loved! A gladiator fight which my son was petrified he was going to get covered in blood as it seemed so real!! Lots of arts & crafts going on in lots of rooms, where the kids thought they were just having fun but they really were learning. Great day out for all and free to get in.

“children loved this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

took the children for a day out, and visited the roman baths, roman barracks and roman museum, all free to enter and parking was 50p per hour. they all thoroughly enjoyed this, and it is great for wanting a family day out whilst watching the pennies.
Caerleon also has some fabulous shops and cafes, great for a rainy day out!

“Fantastic”

I am local but I love to take my grandchildren and any visitors around the museum and then to the Ampitheatre.The Baths with their virtual swimmers is my granddaughters favorite and she visits a couple of times a year.

“Who needs to go to Bath Spa when we have this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

I still can't get over the fact, that it was free to wonder around the Caerleon Roman Baths when you pay an arm and a leg to see the ones in Bath. This is well worth the visit, especially if you take in the other sites in as well. Credit to the volunteers.
