Well kept and interesting visit, ideal for nice weather as outside. Nice to wander around looking at the ruins. Always very quiet and peaceful when we have visited. Free parking on road outside. Dogs allowed.

Walked up to the Roman Fort and from the road it looked a little under-whelming. However, once we were on site, it was amazing. You could see most the fort foundations and it was brilliant the way they have preserved that area on top of...More

After a long walk up hill, we were disappoint to find very little to see. The centre was closed even though it was Saturday on a bank holiday weekend

I was the only one there, on a bright sunny day. The fort is just laid out in the original lay out surrounded by neatly kept grass. Great for children to wander. There was no detailed information, or boards, but it was free.
