Caerleon - the "fortress of the Legion" - was one of the most important military sites in Britain under the Roman Empire. It was the home of the 2nd Augustan Legion housing 5,000 soldiers and horsemen, with an amphitheatre, baths, shops and temples.
Today Caerleon is an attractive historic town with a selection of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.
