Sadly the castle site was closed. You can tell the way the village is devoted to the King Arthur theme it must be packed in the summer. The walk from the village to the castle is seriously steep and not for the infirm. Overpriced parking...More

Fabulous place to visit! Amazing views, and a feat of engineering by medieval people to have built this castle in the sky!

We were certainly blessed with an absolutely beautiful day to visit the castle ruins ~ blue sky, sunshine, seagulls calling ~ what could be more inviting? History and legend are wrapped tightly together as you wander the medieval ruins of the castle of legendary King...More

A place of myth and legend! It’s a long walk from the village down to the seafront and another long walk up to the castle. Then you have to walk down again and then back up to the village. We had a great time but...More

Castle was closed to build the new bridge. We were really disappointed as were unaware of the closure. The walk down is lovely (Not so much back up, hills are steep). The views around the castle and coastal walk are breath taking and well worth...More

My family and I loved our trip to Tintagel Castle! Theres so much to walk around and see! We particularly liked the Gallos sculpture, the wooden door into what was the Great Hall and the bridge over to the island! We will definitely visit again...More

This walk is not for the faint hearted, and not disabled. The castle is closed until spring 2019 however, they are building a new swing bridge which should be open by then to make access much easier. The views, like many in Cornwall are spectacular.
