Best Roman site in the area - loved it. Great bathhouse remains. Nice little museum also, some of the small finds are really fun. I particularly enjoyed the caltrops- don't see those every day!

We enjoyed our visit here, taking advantage of the audio guides and information boards as we wandered round this fantastic site. Free car park, gift shop and an exhibition in the back. Well worth a visit.
