Tintagel Castle (Cornwall)

Now in ruins Tintagel Castle is Cornwall’s most iconic site where the legend of King Arthur was born. A strong hold of the Earls of Cornwall, the castle was built in the 13th Century.

Located on one of the most dramatic and windswept locations in Cornwall.

You have a small exhibition and shop along with a cafe.

You need to be energetic to visit the castle as you have to negotiate a hill down from the village and then up many steps, once at the top there is lots to explore. The path down from the village has a landrover service for a small charge.

    Had a great day at the castle in some brilliant weather. Did get a little hot as once you have negotiated the many steps you have limited places to escape the sun. The cafe at the bottom when we finished had some great food and a welcome break from the sun.
