Excalibur King Arthur Statue King Arthur's tomb Merlin's face carving Tintagel Castle Cornwall

A Godlike mythical hero, King Arthur and his legendary tales have endured the centuries but no one is sure whether or not he actually existed. The legends and myths of King Arthur swirl throughout Britain. Few can beat the drama and romance of Tintagel Castle said to be the place of Arthur’s magical conception. Set high on the rugged windswept coast of North Cornwall, history and legend have become inextricably intertwined, steeping the ancient site in a sense of mystery. Tintagel is just the starting point on our trail of King Arthur. From the magnificent court of Camelot to the final fatal battle with Mordred, some of the most famous tales about the King lead us on a journey through the country’s atmospheric landscape. Glastonbury’s claim to be the ‘Isle of Avalon’ where Excalibur was forged and his sister Morgan le Fay lived is also contentious. After a fire devastated the ancient monastery a band of monks ‘found’ the remains of King Arthur’s grave in the grounds. Streams of pilgrims brought significant wealth to the ruined Abbey for its reconstruction. The stories of Joseph of Arimathea, the Holy Grail, the Healing Well Waters and the Causeway to Cadbury Castle, thought to be Camelot, all support Glastonbury’s claim to be the ‘Isle of Avalon’. Whether early spin or historical truth, no one knows. Either way the town and its sacred sites hold a mystical pull that is difficult to ignore.

With the natural beauty of Snowdonia expected to be seen by a global audience, Visit Britain and BHCT have launched a new tourism campaign to tie in with the movie release to show why Britain and particularly Snowdonia is a legendary tourist destination. Parts of the film, a modern take on the Arthurian legend, were shot in Nant Gwynant, near Beddgelert; Vivian Quarry, near Llanberis; and Capel Curig in Conwy. Your tour of Wales can be linked to our tours of The Lake District, Peak District, Scotland and Ireland.
