Description |


Cirencester Amphitheatre is a remarkable legacy of Roman history in this town, once a very Roman town.


As you meander down to its arena, its size and structure seem to bring back echoes of gladiators and hordes of people witnessing the very best, most exciting and disturbing history of the Roman period. Its massive form and central arena mean for those who can - mock fights and battles ensue.


The grassy corridors which surround the amphitheatre allow plenty of opportunities for picnics or a chance to just sit and stare at a wonder, a legacy of the Romans in British history.
