I would return at a different time of year. I think there should be a limit on numbers in the house at any one time.

For having visited only the gardens, very nice visit. The owner (I guess) very nice, with his cat, he doesn't push anyone out as some can tell in the comments. Good luck with the restorations, fortunately there are still people who want to conserve and restore French heritage. Beautiful ????

Un unforgettable evening lighted with over 2000 candles on August 10th 2019. Going back there for a concert today (21/08/20). Don’t know how it’s gonna be with the Covid 19 restrictions.

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.
