What could be better than going on a brand new adventure somewhere intriguing and mysterious? Here’s an idea of where you could go if you’re up for a magical adventure some time soon.

Elva Hill

Elva Hill stands for ‘place of elves’. Here you’ll find a mysterious stone circle that dates back to neolithic times. Some people have even reported fairy sightings here, although you can make your own mind up about those. Who knows? You might spot a fairy or two.

Puzzlewood

Puzzlewood is a popular set for British TV makers, so you might even recognise it from TV programs like Doctor Who and Merlin. The forest looks almost enchanted, and you’ll love exploring the strange rock formations. Some even say that treasure is hidden here, after 3 jars of roman coins were found here by workmen not so long ago. There could be more hiding amongst the trees – could you be the one to find it?

Stonehenge

Stonehenge has been around for around 4000-5000 years now, and nobody’s really sure why it’s there, although there are many theories. Two of the main theories are that it was built for astrology, and for human sacrifice! Those who visit Stonehenge to report a mystical feeling around the place. If you’re going to be in the area, you can compare Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath tours to see what else you can fit in.

Cheddar Gorge

Cheddar Gorge is a series of cliffs where Britain’s oldest complete skeleton was found over 100 years ago. If you’re a fan of JRR Tolkien, you’ll want to visit here. People are sure that he based Helm’s Deep, a place from his books, on this place!

St Fillan’s Cave

It is rumoured that a Scottish saint lived in this cave. He wasn’t just any old saint though; people say he had the power to heal the sick back to perfect health. How did he do it? By the light that glowed from his left arm, of course. Don’t be frightened though – this place has a good vibe rather than a frightening one. Visit for yourself and see what you think!

St Nectan’s Glen

This ancient woodland has a beautiful waterfall that is rumoured to have cleansed the knights that went in search for the holy grail. It was considered a sacred place during King Arthur’s time, and is still thought of as such by some. This place is considered so magical by other people that visitors even leave crystals, ribbons and photographs here. It definitely has a spiritual aura around it. You’ll need to visit for yourself to believe it!
