Roman baths and ruined castles

We started the morning by touring the Roman Bathhouse in Bath. Very interesting to learn a spring-fed pool known for it's healing properties is lined with lead.

After the bathhouse tour we drove out of town and on our way to Wales. Our only castle of the day was Caerphilly, an old fort that was partially destroyed on orders for Parliament. Caerphilly castle and the surrounding city was a ghost town. Very eerie walking around with a giant stone castle to ourselves.

From Caerphilly we drove just north of Cardiff city to our hotel which provided another amazing view.
