despite Cirencester being a major roman town, the amphitheatre is an unexpected surprise, hidden amongst ordinary houses. Substantially compete but without any exposed stonework

I stumbled upon this hidden gem whilst waiting in Cirencester hospital car park! Its accessible directly opposite the main entrance through a small wooded area. The amphitheatre itself was larger than I was expected and there is some good signage. Take a picnic.

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
