We came here as part of our Discovering Archaeology module so we had a lot of added benefit from a tour guide, but the amphitheatre itself is amazing to walk around, and it’s weirdly pleasant to see local children playing football and games around it....More

On the plus side, this is a very interesting place to visit and to imagine the gladiators fighting it out to the death in the arena with crowds shouting and cheering. On the negative side, when we visited today, the place opened about an hour...More

How amazing. Free to visit also parking close to site and more parking in the town at a short walk. Great place to explore. Would highly recommend. Embracing our history

Historic site in a beautiful location in Caerleon. A great opportunity to visit a very complete site and learn some stuff

Not much to see at the amphitheatre. You can recognise it as such but it is not on the scale of Rome or El Jem in Tunisia or others. This is a very low key site with the remains of barracks and other building across...More

There aren't any picnic tables but as the car parking is very close (adjacent) then it's possible to take your own picnic chairs and table should you wish. Lots of grassy area to pitch up with chairs or lay blanket on the... More
