God glass ?

Cozy and picturesque little stop along the road, why not give it a go? I enjoyed the the average waffles outside in the sun - in front of the beautiful lake. The checked out the ruins 1 minute walk away before hitting the dull state road E20 again. Full, refreshed and loaded with a small doze of cultural history... Recommended!

Delicious waffles first thing in the morning! the consistency is perfect: crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, with a generous dollop of cream and cloudberry jam. I also loved the whimsical selection of coffee cups. The café is located in a beautiful setting, just off the E20, definitely worth taking a short break!

Nice place by the lake with tasty ice cream. Didn't test the food or the waffles, but looked real good.

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.
