Wasn't on our original places to visit but certainly glad we made the effort! A wonderful and beautiful place to visit full of history. Make sure you get a talking guide as some of the things we discovered were incredible!

Traveled two days ago, as of my experience there is no free train ticket and the travel takes about an hour from center of London.
