What a shame there is no car parking - you either have a fair walk from the town or have to find a space amongst residents cars in a side street. You need gallons of imagination and I feel this could be so much better, to attract visitors, but at least it is free.

Quite easy to find, please be aware there is no car park so you need to park on the road. Not a lot to see here just the earth mounds but nice to sit and look at the scenery on a nice sunny day (like today). It doesn't cost any thing to get in.

Reading other Tripadvisors reviews and their difficultly in finding the location/ being a distance from the Town Centre, I found that these 2 factors could be overcome by parking at the entrance to the site on Cotswold Avenue (off the Bristol Road at postcode GL7 1XW). At the entrance is an illustrated display board where, amongst other things, it mentions... More

A very unexpected sight in an awkward part of the town to find. Well worth the effort as it conveys a little of what going to the thrills and spills at the amphitheatre was like 2000 years ago. Much more could be made of it, but I was glad of the quietness. It allowed my imagination to fill the scene.

Visited on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Kids playing football - jolly useful having the slopes of grass, that used to be the stands full of people viewing one deadly contest or another, helps the ball roll back to you. It could be more informative but its like books and movies with books you have to fill in some of the... More

This is located a fair walk from the town centre and on arrival one finds, grass, mounds and little else. One needs to have a vivid imagination to take one back to the days of Roman occupation. This could be sooooooo much more with a bit of imagination.

Not going to enthral too many people, but that is not to say that it should not be visited. This is as should be expected more of a 'remains of...' and as such is just grass and mounds roughly the correct shape. Is pleasant enough and you can sit and sort of watch Cirencester traffic pass by from one side... More

The visitor experience would be better with information boards and pictures as I think the history would be lost on many - especially children.

If you are driving across England via some of the very straight Roman roads your trip might cut through Cirencester. This is a good place to break your journey and stretch your legs. It is a popular place for dog walkers and can get pretty muddy. There is no stonework visible just some very steep grassy banks you can have... More
