These Roman Baths are worth visiting as you get a sense of history. There are video clips projected onto the walls with narration. When we visited entry was free. You just had to pay for parking as it belongs to the local pub.

Didn't know what to expect but well worth the trip from Abergavenny. Lighting and graphics really made it all lifelike so easy to see how the Romans used the baths.

What a hard place to get to.Not one signpost on the main routes.Spent over half a hour driving around Newport looking for a way to get there.Giving up we decided to go through Usk and Lo and Behold a Signpost hidden in bushes at the side of the road. Parking in the village was behind the Pub for only two hours, but walking to the Ampitheatre there was free parking but not a lot as most places were for coaches which there were none .Best to take a picnic with you. The Baths were rather good as was the Museum.On enquiring about the lack of signage I was told that there was one on the M4 so unless you come that way hard luck.

What a fantastic place this National Roman Legion Museum is we were staying in the near bye Celtic Manor Resort and got a leaflet in reception and after reading thought that we had to visit the buildings as they were so close to the resort.

The Bathhouse and amphitheatre are all very well preserved and the great thing is that you get to walk around the ruins of the amphitheatre which is about 2000 years old, the artefacts in the museum are very well preserved as well and make very interesting viewing.

Whist we were visiting there must have been several junior school trips visiting the sites, how fantastic it must be for the young children so view, see and touch such historical artefacts.

Will return again on our next trip to Wales a must for all people interested in important historical buildings and best of all it's FREE!!
