Well worth the walk around the village to see all the different sites. Best to follow in the order on the notice boards. Pity there wasn't anywhere to stop for coffee during our time here.

Situated in a village next to the A48, Caerwent is a gem if you like Roman history in Britain. The car park has signposted access to two sets of remains within easy walking distance - some home and shop layouts and the "Courtyard House". It...More

Caerwent is a small village off the A48, which many people would pass by of they weren't looking for it. The parking for the Roman remains is well positioned and gives easy access to the whole of the site. The town is remarkably well preserved...More
