  • Great for a walk all year round, lovely views from the top of the wall - worth a visit to the church half way round and then pop into the Calleva for a pint !

  • Very interesting. In good weather a very enjoyable walk around the Roman City Walls. The Amphitheatre is an experience, you can see where the bear pits were and can imagine all the sports taking place...  read more »
  • Some impressive Roman walls forming a complete perimeter that can be walked easily in just over an hour for free. Look out for the alpacas at the farm and the church is worth a visit too.
  • A lovely walk in the Summer, and some interesting information boards detailing the layout of the town and the orientation of the walls, etc. There is still a lot of wall remaining, and the ampitheatre is definitely worth a visit, impressive. If you do decide to walk the full circumference then the church on the south side is interesting, but not worth a special visit. The only downside is that the excavation itself is fenced off, and doesn't look like it's been touched for a while. If you are looking for live archeology then this is a slight letdown.
  • Needs a bit more explanatory panels and perhaps increased access to the ruins, hopefully made accessible even in rainy periods...
  • Amzing
  • Nice walk
