Cadbury Castle


Steeped in history and mythology, explore the site of the long-forsaken Cadbury Castle. A military stronghold for over 4000 years, the first earthen ramparts were raised in the Stone Age. In the 16th century it was suggested that this site was indeed the stronghold of King Arthur during the 6th century. Follow the footpath to enjoy amazing views from the earthen ramparts to Glastonbury Tor and the Somerset Levels. 

Cadbury Castle is situated on private land. There is no actual castle but you can still see the defensive earthworks.

There is a small public car park on the southern edge of South Cadbury village, nearly opposite the path to the castle. Please park with consideration for farm and private traffic in the village.
