Richborough Roman Fort and Amphitheatre

Access

Advance Booking

You now need to book timed-tickets in advance to visit Richborough Roman Fort. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.

The time shown on your ticket is the earliest you can arrive, and you can arrive at any point within an hour of that time. You're then welcome to stay for as long as you like.
