About

Caerwent Roman Town is an archaeologist’s paradise. In Roman Britain it became the tribal capital of the Silure (Venta Silurum), serving as the administrative counterpart to the Roman camp at Caerleon.

The town itself is still predominantly found within the impressive fourth-century Roman walls, with parts of the walls standing up to 17 feet (5.2m) high. Excavated houses, forum-basilica and a Romano-British temple also remain, plus archaeological discoveries can be found in the Church of St Stephen & St Tathan in Caerwent.

Parking at Caerwent

The West Gate barns area provides free car parking, level access to toilet facilities and interpretation panels. The car park is open 10am - 4pm and open all year round (except 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January).
