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

There is not much there admittedly and the interpretation is somewhat lacking but this is still well worth a visit. There it is, right in front of you, evidence that two thousand years ago the Romans were enjoying their own version of the X factor.

This was the first spot we got to on our first visit to Cirencester. We'd parked nearby and were heading downtown, saw the sign to the amphitheatre, and walked over. Beautiful green oasis, and excellent views of the city from the top of the hill. Easy to imagine it having been used by the Romans for all kinds of spectator... More

Amazingly still here, and in reasonable condition after 2000 or so years, the amphitheater is a bit underwhelming. Well looked after the English heritage people, this property, consisting of circular concentric grass covered rings needs a bit more imagination than we could offer. We didn't expect any Russell Crowe lookalikes but some more info would have welcome, consequently the site... More

Looking at the poster I was expecting more from the "Roman amphitheatre" but basically it was just a slight dip in the ground. I expect it was a lot more exciting 2000 years ago. Go to the pub instead.

There is little signage how to get here , but spoke to a few locals and explained how too.There is not a lot to do but if you want some where of the track to have a bit of peace and quiet this is it.

Study the information board before entering the amphitheatre and the let your imagination take over. Better still pretend you're Russel Crowe in Gladiator. Great for both little and big kids.

The pace gives you an idea, but if you've visited other arena's, then it's just for the walk and the view. Not bad, but not top!
