Silchester Roman Town car park

A brief description of the walk

This is a flat walk, suitable for all the family and dogs, with no stiles.

This is the real Roman tour and a step back in history. Follow the Roman walls and earth works of Calleva Atrebatum, visiting its amphitheatre and calling in to see the 12th Century Church of St. Mary’s.

From Silchester Roman Town car park, the footpath starts by the information pillars. Keeping the trees and ancient earthworks to your left, continue through the gate until the path meets the larger track. Turn left, through the gate and follow the path along the wall, then alongside the buildings, through the gate and onto the road.

Turn left along the road to visit the amphitheatre. Return back along the road and keep going until you reach the Church. Now, keeping the wall to your right, follow the road for 100m. Take the footpath alongside the wall, until you reach a kissing gate. Go through the gate, along the track, turning left back to the car park.
