Now, we’re not suggesting that you travel hundreds of miles to this spot, but if you happen to be visiting the Amphitheatre already then follow these steps to find it:

  • Starting at the Cotswold Avenue gate, follow the main path down the hill then turn right into the Amphitheatre.
  • Walk across the Amphitheatre and out the other side – you’ll see an information board.
  • Turn right and head down a slope.
  • After a few steps, turn left into a small area of woodland which is carpeted in snowdrops in Spring.
