The Jewry Wall and the remains of the Roman town's public bath form one of the city's most famous landmarks. The Wall forms a natural stage with sheltered seating under the building canopy.

Jewry Wall tells the story of Leicester's archaeology from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages and also provides space for talks, training, activities and receptions.

This venue also welcomes more informal events for Roman emperors, Viking warriors and Dark Age peasants.

Museum is open 11am-4.30pm from February to October, during which times access maybe limited.

There are public car parking spaces nearby. Jewry Wall Museum provides disabled access.
