School Visits

A school visit to Wroxeter Roman City is truly a unique experience and we offer both free self-led visits as well as visits led by our experts at the remains of what was once one of the largest towns in Roman Britain.

The Roman centurion was excellent, very much in role! Fantastic! All children looked at the ruins in a different way. Very worthwhile.
