As a result of the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak and to keep our staff and our visitors safe, Lost Legends of The Stone Circle is now closed until further notice. We will reopen when it is safe to do so. Please keep safe everyone.

Located right next to King Arthur's Labyrinth, you can explore this outdoor attraction where you'll find eight mythical stories hidden amongst the snaking paths of a simple maze.

Navigate the winding paths to find intriguing characters waiting to tell you their stories. At the centre of this bewitching attraction, find our dramatic stone circle – the portal through which our cast of characters emerged...

Meet the Fairy Lady of Llyn y Fan Fach and the Physicians of Myddfai. Hear the chilling tale of Changelings, human babies switched with fairy folk. Enjoy Mair's romantic tale and how she escaped the cruelty of her Father - Giant Idwal. Discover the secret held by March the Lord of Llyn, known only to his barber. Hear how John Gethin was tricked by the Devil. Learn of how Blodeuwedd, the flower lady, deceived her husband and the fate that came to Elidorws when he stole from his friends in the Fairy Kingdom.

Building on ancient Welsh traditions of passing on legends by word of mouth, The Stone Circle is an enchanted world filled with voices and tales long since forgotten. Inspired by Celtic myths and magic, this simple maze is filled with sculptural figures who will tell you their stories.

Meet the fairy lady of Llyn Y Fan Fach alone in her moonlit lakeside haunt, hear the chilling tales of changelings: human babies switched with elves, encounter March the Lord of Llyn and his closely guarded secret and tread the mysterious ruins of a druidic temple. At the centre of this bewitching attraction, find our dramatic stone circle – the portal through which our cast of characters emerged….

The Stone Circle seeks to surprise, entertain and to teach a little bit about Welsh folklore. For younger visitors there's a Dragon Quest trail with different coloured baby dragons hiding in the maze, each with a number to help you to solve the riddle with multiple dragons hiding around the maze for your little ones to spot.

Once you’ve re-entered the real world, you can share these mythical tales with family and friends, you might even have a medal to show off too!

Scenic artist Stephanie Pasiewicz has designed the layout and the impressive sculptures found throughout the maze. Steph’s previous work has included the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics, Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” (2012) and countless full scale theatre productions.

The installations are designed to work in harmony with nature. The purpose built pond, the lair of the Lady of Llyn Y Fan Fach, plays host to newts and frogs. Exotic dragonflies and butterflies have also been spotted warming up on the stones of our new megalith and a range of birds, from common robins to the rarer gold-crested wrens, can be seen playing amongst the trees, shrubs and plants.
