What a change in five years. Much better boards explaining parts of the fort, a revamped museum, which still manages to relent its Victorian charm, and a EH cafe, serving good coffee. My favourite part is still the walk down to the river where you...More

Beautiful Roman ruins still being excavated on this gorgeous piece of rolling English landscape. Walk around the ruins, checkout the baths and garrison buildings. Really enjoyed the peacefulness and history of the area.
