There’s a lot to do in Somerset this coming spring and summer so why not hire a car from dorsetvehiclerentals.co.uk and visit some of England’s historical landmarks.
There’s even more to learn about in our magical county’s.
Footsteps of King Arthur
Visitors to Glastonbury Abbey are invited to follow in the footsteps of King Arthur and see what is said to be his last resting place.
And now a special conference is to be held to explore the legendary king’s links to the South West.
His last resting place is said to be Glastonbury Abbey and his remains, along with those of his queen, Guinevere, were found by the monks in 1191.
A century later in 1278 the bones were placed in caskets and transferred, during a state visit by King Edward I, to a black marble tomb before the High Altar in the great Abbey Church.
There they remained until the Abbey was vandalised after the dissolution in 1539.
Julie Hayes, the Abbey’s education coordinator, says: “As Arthur is the main theme for the festival it is called In the Footsteps of Arthur., The Abbey is renowned for its Arthurian connections and Arthur continues to be very popular today.
“There are different perceptions of Arthur and here at the Abbey, our view is based on the historical fact that King Edward I came here and placed bones of a person he considered to be King Arthur, into a casket, which he then placed into a black marble tomb.
“Whether you believe in the existence of King Arthur or not, the fact remains that there have been many written references to him throughout the centuries.
“In a sense, the stories of Arthur are part of the claim to fame of the entire south-west of England. He is widely believed to have been born in Tintagel and no-where but Glastonbury Abbey makes the claim of being his last resting place.
“The cult of Arthur was important for the monks of the medieval period, because it helped to attract pilgrims and visitors to the Abbey.
“Even today, many of our national and international visitors are attracted here by the Abbey’s connections to Arthur, most of whom then spend time in the town, so Arthur is not only important to the Abbey but is a key selling point for tourism across the South West.
“The Arthurian romances are widely read for their content as well as for their history. It is easy to imagine the Somerset countryside with hill forts or castles on the high places and dragons sleeping in the wild parts where only knights dare venture. “

Speakers at the conference on April 19 at Glastonbury Town Hall include experts Geoffrey Ashe, Professor Ronald Hutton, Professor Elizabeth Archibald, Professor Ad Putter, Dr Cheryl Green, Rhianedd Smith and Jonny McFadyen.
Tickets cost £20 for an adult, £18 for concessions to include lunch and are available from the Abbey Shop
