Wroxeter Roman City Reviews

We visited on a very hot day and due to the nature of the site there was little shelter so visitors should keep this in mind and be prepared for the elements. The visitors shop was well stocked with gifts, some snacks and drinks. The staff are very knowledgeable and keen to help. There is a fabulous reproduction of a Roman villa which was sadly taken over by swallows who have pooped everywhere. I also thought that the audio guide was a bit of a let down. It was very informative but the voice reminded me of a 1980’s style documentary. The commentary for each section was dry and lengthy and I gave up half way around. My nine year old son listened to the whole thing though. Parking was free and there were toilets. I much preferred the walking tour with a guide that showed us objects and explained things better. However, this was part of a ‘hands on history’ event. I bought a guide book. I’ll probably read that before returning, but I would like to go back.
Interesting. Excavated site of one of the largest cities of Roman Britain. Remains of the bath complex are exposed. There is a reconstruction of a Roman townhouse. During the holidays (check times) there are hands-on history sessions for kids, which evidently are enjoyed. It's an English Heritage site, so no admission charge for members.
