The Silchester Roman Walls are an absolute archaeological gem! You can walk for an age on the 4metre high remains of the original Roman fortifications that surrounded the ancient town. As a historical fiction writer (Sons of Iberia), places like this help me to gain a flavour for the lives of my characters. Defos worth a visit if you like history & or walking.

Some of the best preserved Roman defensive walls to be seen in England. Well worth a visit and a lovely walk around the perimeter

My favourite place to go walking. The walls are remarkably well preserved and you have terrific access to them. Only a short stroll, but if you enjoy a bit of history it is the perfect place.

Sorry No toilets to be seen, No Shop either, But the signs at the car park were enough to help us get around and see and imagine the past of the roman town that once was. Not a great place if you have dogs. as it is still an active farm with livestock. We arrived int he morning and was greeted with Wildlife starting the day.
