Camelot Theme Park was a resort and theme park located in the English county of Lancashire. The park opened in 1983, and was operating seasonally until late 2012. The park was based on the story of 'Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table'.

The closure of the park was announced by its operator, Knights Leisure, in November 2012, the managing director blaming poor summer weather and events such as London 2012 and the Queen's Jubilee for declining visitor numbers. Some rollercoasters were sold while others rust in the abandoned park.

In August 2014, an application to build 420 houses on the site by owners Story Group was unanimously rejected by Chorley Council, as the development was not permissible within the Green Belt. The park is still standing, albeit crumbling.

During my visit I saw several different security guards which limited the locations that I was able to take photos but was lucky enough not to be spotted myself.
