A Last Minute Decision To Visit Silchester Roman City Walls

Last weekend the weather was sunny so we decided to go and explore somewhere new. My husband pulled his phone out and after a google search he choose Silchester Roman City Walls and Amphitheatre in Hampshire. http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/silchester-roman-city-walls-and-amphitheatre/

It was a beautiful scenic walk full of history. We spotted some animals to my sons’s delight, butterflies, cows, sheep, a mouse and a grasshopper. It was safe for both our son and dog to run around freely. Until they got tired and we literally had to carry them both at one point.YES even our dog!

We found a great place to refuel on gorgeous food and a section of drinks that was only a short drive away. Wellington Shop and Farm Cafe has farm animals, outside seating area, dogs can accompany you outside, a park and a shop selling a variety of produce. A great end to a family adventure exploring the beautiful countryside.
