The home of myths & legends

Steeped in history and mythology, the site of the long-forsaken Cadbury Castle is an essential part of any visit to South Somerset or Dorset.

A military stronghold for over 4000 years, the first earthen ramparts were raised in the Stone Age.

Explore the area and as you stand on the summit, search for fossils and ancient relics with the family, pop down to our visitors' wall full of information about historical digs and finds at the castle.

Walk in the footsteps of King Arthur!

In the 16th century it was suggested that this site was indeed the stronghold of King Arthur during the 6th century and there is certainly plenty of archaeological evidence to suggest Cadbury Castle was an important fortification at that time. 

Discover the history that is entrenched in the area at The Camelot where there is a British Heritage feature wall and displays of artifacts from the archeological digs through time.
