Richborough Roman Fort and Amphitheatre

Heritage and Gardens
Heritage and Gardens

Evocatively sited amid the East Kent marshes, Richborough is perhaps the most symbolically important of all Roman sites in Britain, witnessing both the beginning and almost the end of Roman rule here. Explore the huge stone walls which mark the site of this Saxon Shore fortress and take a look at the fascinating museum. Catch a boat from Sandwich and reach the fort as the Romans would have done.

Don't miss:

  • Climb to the top of the replica Roman gateway for spectacular views.
  • Discover unique Roman artefacts that were unearthed at Richborough, in our charming museum.
  • See the remains of the amphitheatre that entertained the population with enthralling gladiator fights.
