Tintagel Castle

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.
