A specialist's outing

Very little to see, and it is prehistoric, nothing to do with King Arthur. If you are interested in archaeology and nearby, it only takes 10 minutes to see the bank and ditch.

As above, not a right lot to see if you're after something a bit more visible. In comparison to other sites of historic interest it rates low, hence the low mark. However, worth visiting if you are in the area and have an interest. No entry fee.

This was one stop along a walk taking in a number of sites in a 6km route. The field the earthwork is in, is on a corner of two roads, so very easy to access. From the main entrance gate, where there is an information board, it is hard to get a sense of the earthwork, so it is worth... More

Saw the sign for this when passing to go to aira force and thought it sounded good, so we decided to go back the next day, well what a waste of time and petrol, all I saw was a mound of grass with cows grazing on it, nothing magical about this place to me

A short walk from Penrith - short enough that good signposts would surely encourage more visitors. King Arthur's Table is a quiet spot, even just off the main road, and it's a magical spot.

Who "invented" that name?????? (he/she certaonly had a terrible lack of inspiration) A piece of Land where supposedly once some prehistorical humans meeted (what about the rest of the country?). It does not worth a visit.

we visited the Great Hall in Winchester long time ago, when the Round Table was still on the floor. I don't know, when they put it up high on the wall. You still feel all the history in the building

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
