The amphitheatre at Corinium (Cirencester) has been greatly improved with information boards showing its history. The site has also been linked to a pleasant walk through the Querns woods and also to the obelisk showing what was the boundary of Lord Bathurst's estate. Although now...More

Not much to see but apparently there once was something there. The grass is well mowed but if you want to see Roman amphitheatres, there are many places to see them. Not worth a visit.

Wasn't expecting much but there's nothing spectacular about this sight unless you're an archaeologist or a dog walker. Some woodland nearby and a playing field. The remains of the amphitheatre are well defined and there are some information boards with a good description of the...More

Okay it's not the Colleseum but at only a short walk from the town centre it's worth a visit. The neighbouring wooded area makes it a pleasant stroll.

The amphitheatre is huge, originally accommodating 8000 spectators. Today it is a massive grass covered ruin set in a green and slightly wild setting. I love this kind of place as you can imagine you have discovered it yourself. There are useful interpretation boards sympathetically...More
