Once the fourth largest city in Roman Britain, visitors to Wroxeter today can take a tour around the fascinating ruins, and explore the new Roman Town House, constructed as part of Channel 4’s ‘Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day’.

Wroxeter (or 'Viroconium') was the fourth largest city in Roman Britain. It began as a legionary fortress and later developed into a thriving civilian city, populated by retired soldiers and traders. Though much still remains below ground, today the most impressive features are the 2nd century municipal baths and the remains of the huge wall dividing them from the exercise hall in the heart of the city.
