"Hard to believe it was so important." Silchester by planxty

Silchester Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 39 photos

A place of past glories.

I visited Silchester on a daytrip from London specifically to visit the Roman remains on the edge of the town (village may well be a better description). I'll deal with the ruins in a separate tip. Apart from them, I encountered a sleepy, obviously affluent little place with a nice pub opposite the village green and a pleasant old parish church. I hope I'm not doing the place a huge disservice, but I don't think it's really a place you'd come to visit other than from the wonderful archaeology. Nice for a day out, though.
