The history of Årsta manor date to the 14th century, when it was a residence of Teutonic Order of Livonia. In 1467 it was acquired by Erik Axelsson Tott. The present main building was built by the Claes Hansson Bielkenstierna around the year 1650. After him Årsta has been owned by Kurck, Soop and Fleming families. Today it is owned by Cedergren family and hosts a restaurant.

Jäyteschyst. Nu ser msn och känner man atmodfären på en golfklubb. Restustanten har väldigt välsmakande mat och en lagom matsedel

God mat i en helt underbar slottsmiljö och med en helt förträfflig personal. Full pott ifrån mig.

Very impressive! We had the reception for our daughter’s baptism in Årsta Castle in July 2017 and could not be more impressed! The Castle itself is absolutely stunning and the dining room with the big chandelier was perfect for our 60 guests. Equally impressive was the service, the food and the price for the most accommodating staff I’ve encountered in a long time. We held the baptism in Österhaninge Church just a few minutes away from the Castle and realized just a week before that our guest count far exceeded the allowed number in the church reception house. So with just one week’s notice they put a beautiful lunch together for our 60 guests that went off without a hitch. Despite our last minute request and our obvious desperation, they didn’t charge a premium and we actually ended up spending less than we had planned for catering. I cannot praise them enough for the experience they provided for our family and guests.

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.
