The amphitheatre at Chester might not be the Colloseum, but it does bring to life and give one a feel for life in North Britain in the Roman times.

Both me and my partner have an interest in roman history and this was a fascinating place to go as it is the only amphitheatre left in Britain. Although there is no actually that much to do, the history of the landmark is really interesting....More

On the outskirts of the city just across from the Roman gardens and Grosvenor Park, this site is easily accessible and can be visited alongside other roman points of interest all in a days activity. Free entry and open every day with city centre car...More

We love roman antiquities and archeology but we were slightly disappointed. It is interesting to see where the amphitheatre was and walk around, but there is very little of the orginal structure exposed. A couple of information boards and that is it really. It is...More

Free entry, not much to see unless you're a roman architecture/historian/ enthusiast to be honest, my partner was a bit perplexed for a lot of it. I thoroughly enjoyed it however and would recommend if you have half an hour spare!

One sign is incomprehensible! It should be down at the river. A very ugly derelict building stands at one end with a busy road at the other. A fantastic structure from 300 CE lurks underneath but this presentation lacks any imagination . Do the Roman...More

The amphitheater is on a busy cross roads and only part of it is still visible. However, it doesn't take much imagination to hear the sounds of violence and audience shouts looking down from the seating area. Around the space information boards give little snippets...More

Difficult immediately to recognise the significance of what can be seen as little remains of the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain but there are helpful interpretative panels and a small-scale model.

Yet another walking the wall Roman stop off point, its only a short walk from the wall and this well preserved amphitheatre deserves your respect for history and time for only a few minutes, well worth a short stop.

The day we were there, it was pouring rain. Not the best day to aporeciate this place of culture. But it is worth seeing. It is a walk through and does not take long.
