Windsor Castle, Roman Baths and Stonehenge!

London, United Kingdom

This is my 5th time to London and I finally have company to visit Stonehenge and Bath with me. Β We bought the tour package from Golden Tours and it costs 79 pounds (around SGD160) per person.

Our first stop was Windsor Castle. I have been to Windsor Castle before and you can see the post here.

This is our tour guide for the trip. We spent more than 5 hours traveling around on the bus and his monotone voice made me slept throughout the whole bus journey.

This is my first time seeing changing of the guard and I was pretty lucky to see it cos it is held only on every Monday at 11am.

Children pretending that they are changing of the guards. Cute!

Our second stop was Bath. Bath is designated as the World Heritage Site and is famous for its hot springs.

Bath is a very beautiful city but unfortunately we only had 90 minutes to explore this city with our tight schedule.

One of the must-see attractions is the Roman Baths.

The Great Bath

Spring overflow

Here surplus water from the Spring pours into a Roman drain and flows on to the river.

The whole pool is covered by coins!

The Romans believe that throwing coins into spring was said to be good luck and Sulis Minerva, the Goddess of Springs, Bath and healing would grant wishes to those who honored here.

Spring water from the Roman Baths contains some 43 minerals and is believed to promote wellness. The spring water taste really awful and has an unusual taste. I suggest taking small sip if not you might throw up your lunch!

Our final stop was Stonehenge! We have traveled for so long but I am glad to say that I have FINALLY SEEN THESE STONES! Been that, done that and will never come back again.

One of the main reasons why you must come to Stonehenge is because it is one of the 7 wonders of the world. Alright, you must be be thinking like me why this circle of stones can be considered as one of the wonders in the world.

There is no records of its creation exist and there is no evidence that ancient man could do it. Today’s scientists and historians are still unable to come to a solid theory of when, why, by whom, and how the intriguing rock structure was built.

Jumpshot failed with my face covered.
