Walked up to the Roman Fort and from the road it looked a little under-whelming. However, once we were on site, it was amazing. You could see most the fort foundations and it was brilliant the way they have preserved that area on top of...More

Hugely significant piece of Roman history and archaeology, especially for North Wales, which can be appreciated with a little bit of reading. However, the modern execution and display of the landmark is not on a similar level, with the shop/centre being shut and rather small...More

After a long walk up hill, we were disappoint to find very little to see. The centre was closed even though it was Saturday on a bank holiday weekend

I was the only one there, on a bright sunny day. The fort is just laid out in the original lay out surrounded by neatly kept grass. Great for children to wander. There was no detailed information, or boards, but it was free.

It was interesting and very cool to be standing on the roman fort, but there isnt much to see thats the only bad part. If your in caernarfon and have nothing to do you might as well go there for a visit.
