Following my recent post about Roman London, here are some more sites to explore, in other parts of Britain.
Roman Baths. Bath, Avon.
The famous hot baths and use of the natural spring gave this attractive city its name. Extensively restored, they are now part of a visitor centre in this city in the west of England.
There is a charge for tickets and tours. https://www.romanbaths.co.uk/
Hadrians Wall, northern England.
Built as a defence against the warlike Scottish tribes, this famous wall extended over 73 miles, from east to west.
Most of it is free to explore, with charges for some exhibitions, and special events. https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/hadrians-wall/
It is significantly lower than when it was built of course, as most of the stones were reused when the Romans left.
Toilets provided for the soldiers.
A substantial fort just south of the wall, at Vindolanda.
St Albans, Hertfordshire.
This was formerly known as Verulanium, and was one of the largest Roman cities in Britain. Just 25 miles north of London, it is easy to get to, and full of interesting history.

The open air theatre, which was said to have had perfect acoustics.
Chedworth Roman Villa, Gloucestershire.
A lovely example of the house of a rich Roman, now run by the National Trust. There is a charge for entry.
Carleon Fort and baths, south Wales.
An example of how far west Roman occupation extended. There is a charge for entry.
Wroxeter Roman City, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Another western site, known by the Romans as Viroconium Cornoviorum. This was the fourth largest city in Roman Britain, and has been extensively excavated. There is a charge for entry.
As you can see, the Romans left their mark all over Britain, and I recommend you try to see some of these amazing historical sites if you visit this country.
