The ancient town of Camelford makes an ideal touring centre, being only a few miles from the surfing beaches of North Cornwall and the natural beauty and ancient sites of Bodmin Moor. The town, historically a vital crossing point on the River Camel, was formally an important market town due to its position on the main route into Cornwall. The patronage of local MPs is reflected in some of the fine old buildings that line the main street.

The public park here by the river is a great stopping off point to enjoy some homemade pasties from the local bakery. The town is often reputed to be the location for heroic King Arthur’s Court of Camelot although the name Camel is more likely a corruption from old Cornish meaning winding. However, legend has it that King Arthur met his death at the hands of his nephew Mordred in a battle fought at the nearby village of Slaughterbridge where today you can find ‘Arthur’s Tomb’ marked by inscribed stone that dates back 1,500 years.
