We heard that St Giles Church, Imber was going to be open to the public from 8th-23rd August 2015. It's possible to join the St Giles Church newsletter to receive information about the history and opening times. We were intrigued to go and view this site, which is closed to the public for much of the year. The countryside around... More

Imber is only open to the public for a few weeks of the year and you need to check the website to find out when. It is well worth visiting, and a unique opportunity to also drive across Salisbury Plain, as well as supporting the Churches Conservation Trust with the Church at Imber.

Hugely interesting, historic, and exciting place to visit. The village itself is open to the public a couple of times each year so well worth finding out when

You have access to Salisbury Plain which is a very special place ecologically and historically. You are able to walk under the huge Wiltshire skies and see ancient hill forts, burial mounds, ancient trackways and more than likely see and hear Army tanks and vehicles and military aircraft on manoeuvres, so you have ancient and modern mixed together.

Visited Imber earlier in 2015. Enjoyed the experience but there is limited attractions/buildings to see. Good for a day out if you are not expecting too much or if its not too far from you.

As long as you remember the army trains on Imber range and you don't stray beyond the well marked perimeter, one can enjoy walking far from the madding crowd with extensive views in all directions. The sense of peace is only periodically shattered by the sounds of shells exploding in the interior of the plain. A word of caution: there... More

Although it's not the easiest place to find (you have to look out for a not too obvious sign along the A360), it is well worth a visit. We visited on the Easter bank holiday Monday in bright sunshine so lots of people had the same idea. Nevertheless it was fascinating. Just a few of the original buildings remain, the... More

We were visiting Wiltshire when we heard about the ghost village open day. Not being local we had to search as it doesn't appear on any maps we had, but we took an educated guess that Imber Rd in Warminster would lead us to it. It was a bit eerie driving through the military range when there were no other... More

The MOD own the site, so always check when the site is open, normally Christmas, Easter & St Gile's Festive Service. I had wanted to visit Imber village for a couple of years now, but every time I was either busy or away. Today I got to visit. Worth a visit for the church and very little of the true... More
