“Interesting, inspiring and informative - don't miss this!”

The Arthurian Centre
Ranked #4 of 6 things to do in Camelford
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 April 2014

A most interesting display of artefacts, photos, pictures and historical information about the Arthurian legends. I love the way it was done ... really respecting the archetypal mystery level of things as well as giving useful facts. Don't miss the photos and the DVD, and also the walk to see the 'Stone of Arthur' with its Ogham script carved into it. A gem of a place, run by lover of the Arthurian Mysteries. Kiddie friendly, too, with dress-up box and play things all 'in theme'.

As we all love the King Arthur stories and the myth and legend we were looking forward to seeing Arthurs stone. The stone was interesting and we did enjoy our visit, however it was such a shame that the whole place just seemed really run down. It could be such a wonderful place as there was also archaeological digs and the beautiful countryside and stream.

We came across The Arthurian Centre whilst reading some local attraction guides. I must admit when we parked up alongside the only other car in the car park we were a little perplexed considering we are at the height of the tourist season. We were warmly welcomed into a covered area which has the usual themed goods for sale and some educational materials including an area for brass rubbing. The outside trail went around an area (usually a field) that had been set up for the Arthurian festival and re-enactments. Along the way there was an area of archaeology - but we were puzzled as to any link. Nice walk but something you could do for free in this wonderful countryside. The actual focus of the site is a stone semi submerged in a strem at the bottom of the site with some strange and doubtful engravings which are reportedly linked to Arthur in some way. Don't get me wrong - interesting though it may be in itself it just left us shaking our heads as to why we paid money for an hour's walk with the dog. Very nice people and a lovely site but historically doubtful and not somewhere we would go back to.

We attended during their Arthurian festival which included battle reenactments of the battle of Slaughterbridge in 540AD where Arthur lost to the Saxons and died. The re-enactment was wild with very committed combatants. Many blows were landed and many were displaying their wounds before the battle ended. The site itself is an attractive place with a very nice walk to Kind Arthurs stone which lies engraved in the river. There is also the battlefield with its storyboards, and an archaelogical dig. Worth an hour or so, but not compelling.
