King Arthur

Faced with yet another gray and rainy morning, we left Bristol and set off for Cornwall.  A couple hours later we arrived at Tintagel Castle, the reputed birthplace of the legendary King Arthur.  It’s exactly what I was hoping for from a coastal English castle – beautiful views…


A beach with rocks to climb and a cave…


Rolling hills and plenty of room for Connor to practice shooting his bow and arrow.


We were lucky enough to be there on a day they were having an event, which involved some fantastic storytellers.  We learned about Horatio Nelson (I didn’t know who he was, but apparently that’s because I’m American.) and the story of King Arthur, which the kids loved.


As you can see, Sophie was inspired by Arthur’s tale.


I think she looks pretty similar to the statue.


We’ve ended our day in Mevagissy, which is quite possibly the cutest seaside town ever.

  1. Looks beautiful – you’re almost making me homesick. How long do you have in Cornwall? If you have a bit of time, I would recommend visiting some of the small villages on the south coast as well, with Cadgwith being my favourite. Also, the Lizard peninsula has some spectacular views (most southerly point in the UK). Cheers, Dan
