Inside Colchester's Roman Theatre

Book Tickets Online


The remains of the Roman theatre in the town centre can best be seen in Maidenburgh Street in the Dutch Quarter: look for the darker paving in the road showing the outline of the theatre's walls. The theatre mentioned in Tacitus' account of the Boudican attack on Colchester was probably on the same site as the later theatre excavated in Maidenburgh Street in 1981-2.

Should you wish to, the best way to get inside the theatre building is on a guided tour of Colchester which run every Saturday at 11am from the nearby Visitor Informaion Centre.
