Roman Theatre of Verulamium
St Albans, Hertfordshire
The Roman Theatre of Verulamium is unique. Built in about 140AD it is the only example of its kind in Britain, being a theatre with a stage rather than an Amphitheatre. Initially, the arena would have been used for anything from religious processions and dancing, to wrestling, armed combat and wild beast shows. From about 180AD the stage came into greater use and the auditorium extended. By about 300AD, after some redevelopment work, the Theatre could seat 2000 spectators.
The ruins one can see today were unearthed in 1847. Subsequent excavations have revealed a row of shop foundations, a Roman Villa and a secret shrine, all thought to date from the First Century.
You will find the Theatre located on the western outskirts of St Albans just off the A4147, known as "Bluehouse Hill".
Junction 21(A) M25 approximately 3miles
Junction 6 M1 approximately 4 miles.
Nearest Train: St Albans (direct to / from London Kings Cross Thameslink)
