“Fantastic learning opportunity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012 via mobile

A brilliant place! Staff are all so approachable and extremely helpful. Free to get, which is always good when you have a few children in tow! Both our children (5&3) enjoyed completing the worksheet the we're given on entering. Lots to see and do for all ages. The toilets are a good experience too, but my daughter wasn't keen to sit on a wooden plinth with a hole in it!! Great fun for all and fascinating to see just how much history were sitting on in Caerleon!

“So much to see -and it is FREE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

What a surprise. So many sites spread across the town. And there is no charge for any of the sites. How do they do it? A fascinating opportunity to explore Roman history for all of the family. On a warm day you will want to spend the whole day exploring the town. have lunch in the pub by the river - sitting on a picnic bench overlooking the Usk. My only concern - the fantastic Roman barracks are not protected and are being damaged by young people who obviously use the area for eating and playing. (I hope it will be preserved for future generations.)
