Atmospheric place marred by New Age visitors occupying the amphitheatre.
oct. 2021
I really like Silchester. It's good for a walk and I like to try and imagine how it looked in Roman times. The English Heritage info plaques are very informative.

My visit this time was somewhat marred by a group of New Age visitors sitting in a circle in the middle of the amphitheatre. I was glared at as if I didn't have a right to be there with them and it killed the atmosphere of the place. I wonder if their visit was sanctioned by English Heritage? A real pity.

Enjoyable stroll around historical site
sept. 2021
Walking around the walls is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. Though it may not be the most intact ruins, there's still plenty to see and learn about. And the amphitheatre still has sense of atmosphere when you walk into the centre. A great site, especially since it's free to enter.

Hugely impressed but seriously let down!

Excavations!!! Where are they? We heard so much of Reading Uni doing the excavations every summer and all we were directed to was a green field!

Don't expect much in the way of Roman remains
sept. 2021
The church is nice, but there's next to nothing of the roman remains to be seen. There are occasional glimpses of the wall through gaps in the fences and undergrowth, but no more, and the amphitheatre is underwhelming.
Fine if you just want a walk, but very disappointing if you were expecting history.

Back again for another walk!!
août 2021
On a fine day it's a lovely walk, several directions/walks can be done. read the info boards and it gives a good insight to the area in Iron Age and later, Roman times. history on our doorstep, fabulous!! My adult daughter and I do this walk quite regularly and love it.

It's managed by English Heritage and is one of the few free visits, free car parking too. Only a portaloo tho, which was in a terrible unusable state at the time of our visit.

Roman history
juil. 2021
Ideal when Reading uni doing their anual dig. Free parking isn't too much of a problem. Able to walk all the way round gives you an idea of the size of the Roman city.

Interesting walk

Lovely quiet place to walk which is steeped in history. Free big car park. I normally visit with a friend or two and go for a walk.

Beware of the height barrier to the car park
mai 2021
As our vehicle has a top box on it we could not get into the car park due to a low barrier (apparently you can ring in advance and get this raised) however we were able to park in a pull in opposite the car park entrance. Nice walk round the walls and round by the church and amphitheatre. Look out for the alpacas in a field by the Church. Nice to see. Church was open but as we had our dogs didn't feel like we could look inside.

This is such an interesting place to visit! There's lots of history here and it's a great place to go for a walk, too.
