Day Twelve – Bath and Stonehenge
After a rainy start to the day, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip to the city of Bath and the iconic Stonehenge.
Bath is an incredibly beautiful city and the students enjoyed a walk through the Roman Baths and a group tour afterwards. The students had the opportunity to listen to an audio guide as they walked through the baths exhibition. They were even able to drink some of the ancient bath water at the very end of the tour (sanitised of course)! Many of the students said it tasted like metal. After the baths, they saw Bath Abby, a beautiful cathedral, and Pulteney Bridge, 1 of 4 bridges in the world that has shops on the length of it. Free lunch time gave them the opportunity to try the local food including Cornish pasties, fish and chips and much more. The students enjoyed some shopping before we all piled back on the buses to head off to Stonehenge.
Although it was STILL raining the students had a lot of fun walking around Stonehenge. The rocks themselves are surrounded by misty fields and sheep, which gave them a magical and mysterious air. Theories were discussed as to why the stones were there in the first place…
Tired but happy we headed back to Cranleigh for a late dinner and bed.
