It's a short walk from the centre of Cirencester and if it's a sunny day (which it was for us) then worth the stroll. Don't expect Pompeii and you won't be disappointed.

Signage a bit lacking (I walked from the town and went the long way round). Busy roads to negotiate both there and back, but I'm glad I made the effort to see this. Interesting information boards and the illustration of the roman street plan of Cirencester alongside the modern street plan puts things into perspective. The erosion control fences in... More

The Cirencester Amphitheatre is easily accessible from the town center, either on foot or from the nearby car park. According to the useful information boards it would have allowed 8000 people to watch the events and its not to difficult to imagine what it would have been like to have been there.

It's a grass dip on the outskirts of Cirencester. There is an information board to explain what it is and free parking very close. It's a pleasant place to sit for a while but is nothing spectacular.

The Amphitheatre is easily reachable either on foot from Cirencester or by car. If you use the latter, park in the Scout Car Park which is very near to the attraction. The Amphitheatre itself shows the physical signs of its existence through the large 10-meter high mounds that encompass it. They are all covered in grass. However, by reading the... More

A short distance away from the town centre this is easily accessible. It's easy to imagine what it might have been like to be a gladiator when standing in the middle of the large space that according to the useful information boards would have allowed 8000 people to watch the events. Need to allow around an hour to explore, perhaps... More

Slightly out. Of town now even following the signs was challenging so found it albeit a little frustrated hence our 'is that it' exclamations upon arrival. History takes many different shapes & forms after all.

If you like Roman history, have good imagination and have got a spare hour in Cirencester, this place is definitely worth a visit although be aware, it is poorly signed from the main roads (with just a couple of signs from the town directing you). There is free parking available, with a short walk to the site. This is a... More
