A Taste of Sham Castle

Have you ever visited a folly? Where was it?

When looking for alternate things to do in Bath, UK (besides the famed Roman baths swarming with tourists), we came across this unusual find: Sham Castle. It is precisely what it says: a complete fake. While the facade looks like a proper castle from the front, there’s nothing behind it. It’s missing a moat, a drawbridge, three other walls, and an interior.

The Ultimate Day-Trip to Bath UK | Things to Do

Going to Bath was a must for us and a much-needed place to relax. The town is named after the Roman baths that have existed there for nearly two thousand years, which still remains a must-see for any visitors. While they are baths, they are not in operation as one and instead serve as a museum. We spent much of our time visiting the Roman baths, but there are so many other things to see in this charming old town. If you only have a day, these are some of our top things to do in Bath. Make sure to check out our video recap below as well!

40 Days in The British Isles: Preview

The UK and Ireland were not originally on our list for our world tour, as we knew they would be expensive countries. However, with enough house-sitting, we made the trip very affordable. Thankfully, this allowed us to stay for about a month and a half while seeing some top sites and even getting out into the countryside. Being in some English-speaking locations for a bit was refreshing. Seeing what felt like America’s great uncle was also fascinating as there were so many similarities. Here is a sampling of some places we visited and a short video with the highlights from this part of our world trip.
