Breakfast in Lacock, described as the “Full English”. It was £9 for this, approximately $13.50 US dollars. It was good, but if I had to do it over again, I wish I’d packed a breakfast and spent that extra hour exploring Lacock, which we only briefly got to walk through.

Old houses in Lacock. It’s exactly what you’d expect from an English countryside village. Apparently some exteriors from Harry Potter were filmed here.

Lacock Abbey, seen from a distance.

Statue at the Roman Baths in the town of Bath. The statues were only added in the 19th century. Bath Abbey is in the background.

This is an overflow from the hotsprings. The engineering work that went into building this complex is rather extraordinary, especially given its age.

Inside Bath Abbey. The admission was a suggested donation of £2.50, and it was worth every pence!
