The history of Hindsgavl Castle dates back to the 12th century, and the name Hindsgavl was mentioned for the first time in the Danish register of manors and estates by King Valdemar II in 1231. Valdemar IV of Denmark besieged the castle with no luck in 1358. The current castle was built in the late 18th century. Today Hindsgavl is a conference center.

Lovely place, decent rooms ( no a/c unfortunately), extremely good service at all fronts ( reception, restaurants, staff in general) and location is probably one of the best in denmark with beautiful parks. Highly recommend!

The hotel is clean, surrounded by beautiful nature. Nice service, Fantastic design! I booked a room with a mix style of the original old castle building and the new material inserted that going well and interesting. I like that the bathroom is separated between the toilet and the rain-shower??✨?‍♂️? The hotel amenities were quite complete and the needs: iron + ironing board, coffee maker, dryer, but if it's better, there should have slippers for walking inside the room, then we could feel relaxation and cleanliness because the hotel has a beautiful garden area to walk around,our shoes used were accompanied by dirt.??? We didn't have the opportunity to eat the hotel's food because the hotel organized an event.Moreover, in terms of breakfast, it is considered good. Especially, the cake (in pictured) is delicious.???

We visited as a dinner company of 13 people. I had a delicious and wellcomposed three-course vegan meal (not on their homepage, but no problem if you call in advance), and the diets of the other guests were also considered very well. Beautiful area, and very friendly staff. The prices are very reasonable considering what you get.

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.
