English Heritage: Wroxeter Roman City
Wroxeter was once the fourth largest town in Britain - the same size as Pompeii. Take in the sheer scale of the 78 hectare site from a viewing platform constructed above the former bath house. Next visit surviving parts of the basilica with its mosaic floor and a reconstructed town house. Walk to the bus station, located close to Shrewsbury rail station, and take the Arriva 96 service to Wroxeter.
