South West Wales launches new Arthur Country trail


A new trail across South West Wales aims to bring to life the mystery that surrounds the story of Britain’s legendary King Arthur. The new trail showcases the Arthurian legend related experiences across the counties of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Swansea Bay and Neath Port Talbot.

Visitors inspired by Charlie Hunnam’s rugged sword wielding Arthur portrayal in the big-screen version of the tale can head off on a quest to see wizard and warrior related sights and sounds using the new trail.

The trail aims to help visitors understand who Arthur really was. From the boulder he is said to have tossed 11 miles from Llanelli to Gower to his burial place in the Preseli Hills and the supernatural caves near Neath, the trail guides visitors through everything from a day out in one region, to a five night break spread over all four, hunting for clues to Arthur’s existence. For those who just want to indulge in the playful side of Arthur’s tale there are fun attractions– from owl experiences to wizard themed afternoon teas throughout the four counties.
