We travelled across England towards Wales for this leg of our journey. We had joined Britstops so mostly used that to choose our campsites for the night during our UK trip. The highlights were the medieval city of Wells (Bishops Palace and Cathedral) in England and the town of Chepstow in Wales (Castle Ruins and Priory).
The Wye River forms the border between England and South Wales so we move back and forth between the two countries as we explore the Wye River Valley - an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Our trek up the mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park as well as the various waterfall walks were the highlights for us in South Wales. The Chedworth Roman Villas were our pick for our travels in this section of England.

Our first stop after Paris is the historical city of Rouen which was one of the highlights of this section of the trip. We stumbled upon The Blockhaus while investigating what the icon on our map entitled 'Engineering Monument' meant. Glad we did as this was another 'must visit' spot if you are interested in WW11 history. We took the ferry from Calais to Dover and ambled down the English coast before visiting London for our first day of 3 planned days in the UK capital. A hop on/hop off River Cruise gave us a great introduction to the main sights. London was great so glad that we will be coming back!
The next web album is a little out of order as a week elapsed between submitting our application for a Russian visa while in London the first time and going back to London to pick up our visa and passports. This album brings that 2nd London trip forward and includes our day in Bath as well. There is plenty to see and do in both London and Bath and enjoyed both trips. Highlights were the Tower of London and the Roman Baths. We will be back in chronological order from next album with the missing week as we head into Wales..
