Mysterious North Wales,
Arthur and the Grail
A Two Day Megalithic Tour of North Wales
The beautiful landscapes and panoramic coastlines of North Wales hide a treasure-trove of historical sites ranging from the spectacular sacred Dyserth waterfall, the Holyhead Holy Well to man-made Stone Age, or Neolithic, monuments such as the megalithic Gwytherin standing stones that have sat in the churchyard for thousands of years before Christianity. The well preserved Capel Garmon chambered tomb has a wonderful vista of the Snowdonia mountain range as a backdrop and the ancient cairns and Bronze Age burial mounds sit on the banks of Llyn Brenig, one of North Wales’s largest lakes. We will be visiting all of the these ancient, mystical and historical sites of North Wales together with the fine Maen Achwyfan, a huge Christianised Ancient Cross, two of the earliest Templar graves and ‘The Gop’, a man made mound similar to Silbury Hill except amazingly built on the summit of a large hill.
These hills and valleys of North Wales were also reputed to have been the home of King Arthur and we will be visiting sites associated with the legend. The amazing hill top fort of Dinas Bran, overlooking the town of Llangollen, one of the most picturesque towns in North Wales and where we will stay for the night, is said to have been built to hold the holy grail and the Valle Crusis Abbey, Eliseg’s Pillar and Arthurs Stone in Ruthlin all have their Arthurian connections. This popular tour of the ancient, mystical and historical sites of North Wales is sure to be a memorable experience.
