Letocetum Roman Site and Museum

Discover what Roman Britain was like at the remains of this important Roman staging post and settlement, including mansio (Roman Inn) and Bathhouse.

Letocetum was an important Roman military fort and was established here along the Roman road of Watling Street in the early part of the 1st century AD. Letocetum was used as a posting station during the Roman advance into Wales, providing accommodation, baths, change of horses etc.

The fort developed into a settlement and eventually a Roman-British town acting as a staging post for Roman travellers for bathing and accommodation.

The museum beside the site has Roman archaeology found at the site and locally.

Letocetum is owned by the National T
