The Roman Theatre of Verulamium
The ruins one can see today were unearthed in 1847 and 1935. Subsequent excavations in 1957 and 1961 revealed a row of shop foundations, a Roman Villa and a secret shrine, all thought to date from the First Century.
The theatre has been refurbished in 2014 to include new steps, pathways and handrails. There is now improved, yet limited disabled access. The Theatre is available to book for cultural entertainment.
It is also possible to view treasures evacuated from the Roman Theatre site at the St Albans Verulamium Museum.
COVID-19 UPDATE: The Roman Theatre will be closed until further notice. This accords with recent Government advice on social distancing.
