Body boarding in Cornwall is one sweet affair!

Myths, legends and stunning scenery at Tintagel Castle, North Cornwall

Who wasn’t captured by the legend of King Arthur as a child?

Mythical Camelot, knights of the round table and Merlin the magician romanticise history and places across the whole of the UK. I’ve been a fan of the stories, films and art work inspired by these tales and that have influenced popular culture.
