Myths and Legends in England - Things to Do

Ours is a mystical and ancient land where legendary kings and queens, highwaymen, outlaws, witches and pirates once stalked. Which bedtime stories and famous myths are true? It doesn’t matter – the pleasure lies in believing they might be. Can you feel the presence of Robin Hood in the ancient oak trees of Sherwood Forest? Did Jesus Christ visit Glastonbury, built on the meeting point of ancient ley lines? Is Tintagel Castle the birthplace of the legendary warrior leader, King Arthur? Feel your spine tingle when you stand in the presence of these myths and legends in truly awe-inspiring places.
