King Arthur Group Tour

King Arthur Group Tour

King Arthur Group Tour

The legends of King Arthur have long been shrouded in mystery and tales of the Knights of the Round Table, the wizard Merlin and tragic lovers Guinevere and Lancelot have charmed people for centuries. Did Camelot really exist, who was the Lady in the Lake and did Arthur really pull Excalibur from the stone? Visit Chester, believed to be King Arthur's chief city,  the beautiful coastal county of Cornwall and Wales, land of myths and legends.

Tour Highlights

  • Chester, reputedly Arthur's chief city, the Roman Amphitheatre and harbour, the City Walls, Cathedral, Water Tower and Minevra Shrine.
  • Wales, home to many Arthurian legends. See one of the possible lakes where Arthur threw Excalibur, Snowdonia National Park where his Knights lie sleeping, the site of an underground pool full of dragons and the legendary location for the Lady of the Lake.
  • Caernarfon, with its thirteenth-century castle. It is said that the design of Caernarfon reflected Edward I’s determination to show he was the 'one true King' of Arthurian legend.
  • Caerleon Amphitheatre, which according to folklore was King Arthur's legendary Round Table.
  • King Arthur's Labyrinth where we sail through a magical waterfall, deep into the mountains of Southern Snowdonia, into a mysterious land of legends and storytelling world filled with dragons, colossal giants, fierce battles and King Arthur. 
  • Cornwall with its many myths, Merlin's Cave, the lost kingdom of Lyonesse and St Michael's Mount, believed to mark the site of a great battle between Arthur and a local giant.
  • The ruins of Tintagel Castle, with its dramatic rope bridge, Merlin's Cave and 72 stained-glass window display depicting the deeds of the Knights of the Round Table. Also the nearby village of pretty Boscastle.
  • Glastonbury Abbey, rumoured to be the Isle of Avalon, to see the graves of Arthur and Guinevere, the Chalice Well and Gardens and the Tor. According to legend, Joseph of Arimathea brought the Holy Grail here. 
  • Winchester, which has long been identified with Camelot. The Round Table can be found in The Great Hall, which is known for being one of the finest surviving examples of a 13th century aisled hall and an enhancement of the original Winchester Castle built by William the Conqueror.
  • Stonehenge, still the focus of much Druidic activity today. One Arthurian legend claims that Arthur's father asked Merlin to bring the stones.
  • Cadbury Castle, a possible 'Camelot' in Somerset. 
  • Bamburgh Castle, one of two possible places that could have been Sir Lancelot’s 'Joyous Garde' Castle.

What Our Clients Say

I was very fortunate to be on their 70th and 75th D-Day celebration tours. The service and attention to details was exceptional. It was very moving to go back.

As a Jane Austen enthusiast, this tour was perfect - and the Jane Austen Festival in Bath was just fabulous to see!

Words fail me...The Downton Abbey was a perfectly wonderful travel experience! We did not know we would be the ONLY guests at the Abbey. When we realised how truly exclusive our tour was we were speechless! Surreal being there and actually meeting Lady Carnarvon.
