Have your own King Arthur adventure this summer in the Ullswater Valley

To celebrate the release of this summer’s on screen adventure King Arthur: Legend of the Sword directed by Guy Ritchie, Ullswater ‘Steamers’ has added a brand-new King Arthur Myths & Legends trail to its ever-expanding mobile app, and new onboard commentary. The Ullswater valley has links to many myths and legends with King Arthur being the most famous. The trail is linked to Arthurian legend and known as “The Dark Lake” it lets you explore the hidden secrets around the valley meeting some of the Knights and find out where Ullswater ‘Steamers’ historic vessel M.Y Lady of the Lake takes her name.

Lisa Braithwaite Attractions Marketing Manager at Ullswater Steamers says; “We are aware of the many myths and legends belonging to the Eden Valley that have been handed down from generation to generation, for hundreds of years now. We thought it would be a great idea to share them and turn them into an easily accessible trail for all to enjoy. We hope fans of the new film will leave the cinema wanting to find out more and encourage them to have their own King Arthur adventure in Cumbria.”

Once on board the cruise you will travel down the serpentine lake passing Aira Force where Sir Eglamore, another noble Knight of the Round Table, lived at the ancient Lyulph Tower with his beloved daughter Emma. Find out about the love story that inspired William Wordsworth’s ‘Somnambulist’. Pooley Bridge pier is the last stop and opportunity to explore Dunmallard Hill that is believed to be the burial mound of Sir Tristian, one of the Knights of the Round Table.
