Follow the legend of

KINGARTHUR

The legend of King Arthur has captivated filmmakers

and storytellers for centuries and in May director Guy

Ritchie’s interpretation,

King Arthur: Legend of the

Sword,

will finally reach cinema screens. But there are

many historians who believe Arthur’s reign is not just

medieval mythology. Ancient writings have connected

places across Britain to the legendary king – from his

supposed birthplace at Tintagel in Cornwall to King

Arthur’s Round Table in Cumbria – inspiration to

map out your own travel crusade. Start at the ruins of

12th-century Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, continue to

Glastonbury – more famous now for its music festival

but it is steeped in Arthurian history. Monks claimed to

find remains of Arthur and his Queen in Glastonbury

Abbey and Excalibur, that legendary sword, is said to

have been forged here. At least two lakes in Wales, Llyn

Llydaw and Llyn Ogwen in Snowdonia, are claimed to

be the final resting place of Excalibur, Carlisle in north

west England is said to be the site of Arthur’s Camelot

and the round table is rumoured to have its origins in

Eamont Bridge in Cumbria. To find out more search
