Very interesting if you like reading the display boards. Worth about an hour or so plus a nice cafe to visit after. Good for a rainy day but quite expensive for the time it takes.

Loved it as I am obsessed with the Roman conquest of Brittania and Vectis. Beautifully conserved with clear and simple explanations. This was supported with information boards placed strategically around. Should take about one to one and a half hours.

Seventeen ladies from Binstead W.I. had a fabulous guided tour of this interesting site, led by Sally. Very informative and interesting history, beautifully presented, followed by lovely food in the efficiently run cafe. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit...... For all ages. Would highly recommend.
