Open Doors - Caerleon Baths, Amphitheatre and Barracks

Join a tour of the Baths, Barracks, Fosse and Amphitheatre in the company of our Roman expert.

The extensive remains of the legionary fortress at Caerleon lay claim to being one of the largest and most important Roman military sites in Europe.  Established in AD75 as the headquarters of the Second Augustan Legion, the legionary fortress of Isca took its name from the nearby River Usk.  Here on a flat site close to where ships could land supplies, the fortress and other buildings were laid out with characteristic Roman efficiency.

Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

The tour begins at the Fortress Baths.
