Britain’s varied and stunning landscapes and ancient historical sites are known to attract some of the best film-makers in their quest for the perfect locations, so it will be with interest that we can look forward to the release of acclaimed British film-maker Guy Ritchie’s new movie, ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ later this month.
Filming locations featured include the awe-inspiring scenery of Snowdonia, where, as legend has it, Arthur’s sword, Excalibur was thrown into the lake of Llyn Llydaw upon his death. Look out too for the ancient monument site known today as King Arthur’s Cave in the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the dramatic coastline and mountain ranges of the Isle of Skye located off the West coast of Scotland and the historical heritage of Windsor Great Park, all of these amazing locations playing their part. Whether you are a film buff or not, it goes without saying though that we shouldn’t need any excuse to visit these great places!
If you are interested in the historical background and mystery of the legend surrounding King Arthur, why not take a trip to North Cornwall and visit Tintagel Castle, commanding spectacular views of the dramatic coastline, these fascinating ruins are said to be the birth place of King Arthur.
