Your guide to the very best Roman sites in Britain, from the most famous treasures to an array of hidden ancient gems which still dot the country over 1,500 years after the ancient Romans finally bid farewell to Britain.


The Historvius Explorer page allows you to find your very own world of history travel – whether you’re simply browsing the map for historic sites, seeking history travel inspiration or looking to explore by historic period or famous figure.You can explore our historic destinations in a number of ways: by country, town or holiday resort, by date, by historic period, by historic figure or simply by a free-word search.

You can also use our advanced results functionality to narrow your selection as you go – for example, you may wish to see all the historic sites near your resort, and then narrow that selection to view only those of a certain time period on your own bespoke map.

Finally, remember you can shortlist sites as you go and then produce your very own history travel itinerary with day-by-day maps and information on every site you’re going to visit.
