Overview

The remains on view at Caerleon provide the visitor with a vivid picture of life in second-century Roman Britain. Some 12 miles down the Roman road you will come across Venta Silurum, the first town in Wales and the tribal capital of the Silures. We call it Caerwent today. If you get a chance, pop down to see its surrounding walls and the remains of shops, a Romano-Celtic temple and the forum-basilica.

How do you make your Roman remains different and equally interesting compared to everyone else's. Well, Caerleon have had a darned good go at it. The remains themselves are superb, but the special effects, rather than making it cheesy, actually add an atmosphere I've not...More

The archaeological work that has been done on the Roman baths is amazing. There are a lot of things you can touch and there are great displays with audio included. It's so cool to see the sandal print of someone almost 2000 years ago. Well...More

So much history quite a lot of walking uneven for people with walking diffulties. Not a place to go on a wet day, as a lot of outdoor walking. Lots of parking space. Several sections baths ampitheatre and army living quarters.

We had a very enjoyable morning in Caerleon exploring the wonderful Roman Bath exhibition. Beautifully done. Then to the Roman museum and on later to the Amphitheatre. So much history in one small Town. We can thoroughly recommend a visit. All free!!!!
