A nice walk from the river to the town along some of the roman relics found/unearthed from the last 100+ years. The hypercauste floor/room is a good reconstruction and all the other relics have been well displayed along the walkway.

Actually nearly walked passed this this place as the sign was for evening open air movies, realised what it was and went in. Well maintained gardens with partial remains of a Romans bath house. Love the history.

Lots of places to sit and sometimes there is a Roman centurian putting school children through their paces practicing their sword skills, wooden ones!

You will spot this from the wall as you walk around and is an easy climb down the steps and then turn right under the bridge to the entrance. It is well preserved and worth looking at but if you are feeling sceptical remember the...More
