Ffwrwm

‘Ffwrwm is a dream - shared by all who come here’

Ffwrwm Arts and Crafts Centre is nestled in the historic Roman settlement of Caerleon in South Wales. 

 

Ffwrwm celebrates the town's Roman past and its, lesser known, alter ego as Camelot - the court of King Arthur.

Visit Ffwrwm

Ffwrwm's sculpture garden is full of wonders telling the ancient tales of Wales and - at 44 feet long - it's home to the largest lovespoon in the world.

The original site of the Porta Praetoria - the main gate to the fortress of Isca and just a short stroll from Caerleon's other Roman attractions: the amphitheatre, baths and museum - come and see our sculpture garden, shops, restaurant and galleries.

Why Ffwrwm?

In Welsh, 'ffwrwm' means 'bench' - a place to sit - from the Latin 'forum'. For Romans, the forum was a gathering place. Every town had one. It was a market - and a place for meetings and debates.​ Ffwrwm Arts was made to be all these things.

 

A place where you can simply sit and talk - or...

...you can view an exhibition, celebrate the solstice, take treatment for a bad back, find goods from jewellery to geodes, children's clothes to candles, antiques to fine art...

...and eat some of the area's finest food in The Snug.

 

All while surrounded by carved works of the imagination.

Come together in our gathering place at the heart of Caerleon.

'More often than not we choose to sit outside for a while as the scenery is so beautiful and we can just relax!'
