This brooding 13th-century castle sits on the rugged and spectacular Atlantic coast in Cornwall, which recalls the myth and mystery associated with King Arthur and Merlin the magician. New exhibition explores the stories linking Tintagel to King Arthur which includes a 3D model of the site illustrating how it has changed over the centuries. Dog friendly and child friendly, this is a great day out for all the family.

We visited here on a sunny day in July, an easy walk down to the sheltered cove and then all the steps up to the ruins. Sensible footwear is a must, the steps are of different heights, but there is a handrail which for me...More

There is a car park in very close proximity to the castle. I did not see any motorhomes when I was there. The entrance to the car park is fairly narrow and parking is limited, it's not an overly big car park.
