We paid the £5 entrance fee for adults, children were £2.50 and under 4's get in free. This differs from the price on the website but is still excellent value for money and the price difference could be because there it was a bank holiday weekend and there were guided tours and even Romans! We expected a small site to look around and then to go home. We were wrong!
As an ex-archaeologist (if you can ever really be an ex-archaeologist) I was totally impressed with the gentlemen who was doing the tour, he was so passionate and knowledgable about the site and dressed as a Roman General! What more could you want? His talk was child friendly and my partner and I enjoyed it very much. The area itself is small, you can walk around all of it in about 5 minutes if you don't pay attention to anything (which I'm sure you wouldn't do) but there is a lot of good quality archaeology there and the guided tours are brilliant.
It's a child friendly place and has an area for children to actually touch old archaeological finds, dress up like a Roman or just sit and do come colouring in. This area is in a hut, so would be good in a rainy day or on a day like today, which was sunny, it would give them some shade.
We will be going back in July when there is a two day event going on. The facilities are low budget (portaloos) and there is nowhere to buy food or drink, but there is plenty of space around it to have a picnic, which is what we will be doing in July when we revisit.
