Imagine the Map of Cornwall

In Search of King Arthur (1994)

First stop:
Glastonbury Tor, Somerset
Held to be the Isle of Avalon, where the dying king was brought.
Second stop:
Glastonbury Abbey, Somerset
Ancient beliefs held that Joseph of Arimathea burried the Holy Grail and King Arthur was also burried here.
Third stop:
Tintagel, Cornwall
Ruins claimed to be Arthur's castle, where the king was born and lived with Queen Guinevere.
Fourth stop: Merlin's Cave, Tintagel
Fifth stop:
Sherbone old castle, Dorset
Norman ruins that belonged to Sir Walter Raleigh.
Sixth stop:
Winchester castle and the Knights of the Round Table
Castle Hall's Round Table dates from Tudor times

We searched and searched but could not find Excalibur in Dozmary Pool on Bodmin Moor,
the site of King Arthur's last battle against his nephew (or was it his son?)
Prince Mordred. After hours of driving through the rain and mist, we could not
locate Cadbury castle, the site of Camelot. The Holy Grail was definitely not in Tintagel
(in South of France maybe?) So we went to Sherbone which has nothing to do with Arthur!
