This is a significant and interesting site, and well worth a visit for those interested in history. This was the point from which the Romans first invaded England in AD 43. Some of the remaining walls are very high and also wide, and must have...More

We took an audio tour of the remains of the castle, which was very informative. The signs dotted around are a bit worn out. Overall it was a interesting trip.

The walls here are impressive - they are very high in places and also wide. There is little shade though on hot and sunny days so best to take a hat

We've lived near to this site for many years, and never visited. On recommendation we came today. It was quite an amazing tour, starting with the briefing from a very positive guide, Margaret, whose passion for the site is infectious. It's a site which takes...More

Considering this site is over 1800 years old there is a lot still to see and the audio guide and information boards are excellent at interpreting the history of these ruins and explaining how that interpretation has been arrived at .

This sight is interesting but I’m glad I have membership and didn’t have to pay almost £20, it does seem excessive for wandering around ruins, which took 30-40mins at the most. My boys enjoyed the audio guide and the wander and it was so short...More

We visited the castle by accident as was trying to find a house I stayed in. Not much to see as just a few ruins. Good car park and a toilet. Considered entrance fee excessive
