Located in the heart of Caerleon village (close to Newport), this amphitheatre was once a hub of gladiator battles and wild animal fights during the Roman occupation of Britain.

Today, visitors can witness the stunning remains of this once grand structure, including the seating areas and arena where spectators would have cheered on their favourite fighters. The amphitheatre was built in the late 1st century AD and is considered one of the finest examples of its kind in Britain. As you walk through this historic site, you can truly imagine the crowds and excitement of ancient Roman times. Don't miss the chance to visit this fascinating piece of Welsh history!
