Näsilinna Palace

Tampere, Finland

The Neo-Baroque palace Näsilinna was built by Finlayson factory owner Peter von Nottbeck in 1898. It was designed by architect K.A.Wrede. Due to deaths in the owner's family, Näsilinna was soon left without residents, and the city of Tampere bought it in 1905. It was changed to museum already in 1908.

Later Näsilinna was unoccupied for years and dilapidated badly. The restoration was completed in 2015. The first floor was restored to the early 1900s style and there is a restaurant and cafe. The second floor hosts a museum exhibiting the von Nottbeck family story in the early 1900s.

Me and my wife had our wedding in Näsi Castle, and I have to say that everything was perfect. The service was great and the whole process of arranging a wedding was made very easy and smooth for us. During the wedding day we didn't need to worry about anything and could just relax and enjoy the day. Thank you for a perfect day!

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
