Day 5 – Bath and Stonehenge
Today was an early (6:45 am) start to drive to Bath and Stonehenge. We started our day in Bath. We walked (in the rain!) all the way to the circus and the Royal Crescent, which was built in the 1700’s and was designed in the style of Roman architecture with large pillars.
We then had some free time to explore the local area, trying local delicacies such as Cornish pasties and sausage rolls from the cafés. After a quick lunch, students started their audio guide-led tour of the Roman Baths, built in AD60. We learnt about how the Romans in Britain lived and life in Roman Baths.
After Bath, we drove to Stonehenge, the Neolithic UNESCO-listed heritage site. Students learnt about the variety of potential uses of Stonehenge, from a clock to a burial site. The weather was VERY British, with heavy rain all day. However, it did nothing to dampen the amazing mood and smiles of all the students!
