Cornwall Heritage Trust is partnering with The Vale of Avalon/Arthurian Centre, Slaughterbridge to offer its members a 50% discount on entry to the site.
Located near Tintagel, famous for its association with Arthurian legend, The Vale of Avalon/Arthurian Centre is known as the traditional location of Camlann, Arthur and Mordred’s final battle.
Taking visitors on a journey through time involving Arthurian legends, Cornish history and folklore, there is much to explore at the 16-acre site including the 6th-century inscribed ‘Ogham’ Stone, which is a National Scheduled Monument.
Archaeological investigations at the site have also revealed a 13th-century longhouse, the village of Melorn, the 18th-century Lady Falmouth’s Garden and a 19th-century cottage/ticket office.
More recent additions include a wildlife garden, heritage fruits orchard and the ‘Muse Garden’, whose design is inspired by the Grand Tour of the 1700s.
Further details about The Vale of Avalon/Arthurian Centre can be found on its website here www.thevaleofavalon.co.uk
Membership Manager, Sophie Meyer said: “The Vale of Avalon/Arthurian Centre is a brilliant place to visit so it’s great to be able to offer our members this new benefit. We know how many of them already love visiting Tintagel Castle for free with their membership, so it’s fantastic to be able to offer them discounted access to another stop on the Arthurian trail.”
“Being able to offer our members free and reduced access to a wide range of Cornish heritage sites is incredibly important to us – it’s a benefit we know they hugely value for their support of our work and we’re hoping to have news about even more historic places they can access with their membership very soon!”
