Important update from English Heritage
In line with government guidelines, our staffed sites remain closed in the interests of public health. It is now clear that we will not be able to re-open on 1 May as we had originally hoped. Instead we will re-open as soon as government advice allows and only when we can ensure the safety of our visitors and our staff and volunteers.

English Heritage look after our National Heritage Collection, including many wonderful buildings, monuments and historic sites. The Roman Amphitheatre at Chester was initially constructed in the 1st century, before the Legion were moved up to Hadrian's Wall and the Amphitheatre fell into ruin.
