King Arthur's Great Halls

King Arthur's Great Halls

The interior of King Arthur's Great Halls in Tintagel featuring the round table, granite throne and fantastic stained glass.

The hall was built in the early 1930s for Frederick Thomas Glasscock, a retired businessman who made his fortune in the custard industry. After visiting Tintagel he was captivated by the Arthurian legend. He also set up 'Fellowship Of The Knights Of the Round Table Of King Arthur' for which the halls became the headquarters.

The stained glass is some of the finest to be found anywhere outside of a church. All 72 were designed by Veronica Whall, a pupil of Arts and Crafts innovator William Morris.
