From King Arthur’s Tintagel to inhabited caves on the Gower Peninsula, we reveal the magic of ancient sites all over the country in our new issue – on sale now
As Tintagel Castle’s new bridge is unveiled in the south-west, we tour the nation’s top sacred spots, then take our own pilgrimage to south-east England for 24 hours in Chaucer’s Canterbury. Meanwhile Nancy Alsop investigates the equally mystifying language of heraldry, which appears on everything from government buildings to ketchup bottles. Up in Scotland we explore the setting of Prince Charles’s new B&B in Caithness, which sits just next door to the Castle of Mey, the much-loved holiday home of the late Queen Mother.
