Not easy to park but worth 20 minutes to visit. A very ancient site and close by there is a much better one but worth visiting them both at the same time. Nothing to do with King Arthur needless to say but people love to spend time chasing that particular myth and why not.

If you can find somewhere to park you could pop over to see this. It's fairly impressive when you walk around it, but as has been said in other reviews, don't expect a round table, or anything to do with King Arthur, it's just a cool historic mound.

This henge is thousands of years older than the legend of King Arthur. It's got as much to do with him as my back garden has to do with the lost city of Atlantis. There isn't much there, and Mayburgh (just around the corner) is much more impressive. What is impressive is the fact even something is there 4,000 years... More

I was expected a wooden round table but instead, I found more than I bargain for. One has to walk around the place to get the feel of it. The plague with description and history helps a lot. Thankfully, not many cow dungs or sheep poops here.

Easy access from the old A6 - but blink and you miss it - you'll need quite an imagination with this one as there are only old earthworks left.

King Arthurs Round Table is circular earthwork bounded by a ditch and an outer bank. Near by attractions are Millennium Stone and Mayburgh henge. The site has nothing whatever to do with the legendary king it is named after. A combined trip to Castlerigg stone circle is possible in a day.
