The Arthurian Centre is a fascinating site! The multi-period use of the area means there is something for everyone and for all ages. The earliest references to the property name it as the legendary location of Camlann, King Arthur's last battle ( c.AD540). The Domesday name for the area ( AD1066) is Guerdevalan - a Cornish word for 'Place of Apples' - the earliest reference to Avalon? How much of the legend you believe is entirely up to you but there is an intriguing, 9 foot long, inscribed memorial stone by the river here, which dates from exactly the right time - i.e 1500 years ago! In addition archaeologists come to the site every year. They have uncovered a 13th century deserted medieval village, a defensive earthwork, a 19th century cottage and an 18th century garden! Many of the most interesting finds from these digs are on display in the Exhibition Room. Why not visit, there is so much to see? You are also only 10 minutes by car from Tintagel and Boscastle. On site you will find easy, convenient parking, the Exhibition Room which explains some of 2000 years of Cornish History and legends, a gift shop, toilets, play area and walks through 16 acres into the Camel Valley and woods. * New for 2015 - you can now camp on our peacful site!
