It was amazing to be able to touch the wall , knowing that had been built by the hands of Romans. A fair walk from the Car Park , but lovely on a summers day. Beautiful views from there too.

Discovered during building work in the 1950's, Caister's Roman Fort is now well-preserved. The remains are little above the ground, but the information boards offer an insight into how the place could have looked in Roman times.

There is a good carpark but involves a bit of walking to fort but well worth the time for the view over the Waveney and Yare valleys.

Very interesting ruins that show some of the amazing history of this area of Britain. Information boards guide you through what you're looking at, and because you can get down and walk amongst the ruins it helps you visualize what once was. Although really interesting,...More
