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.

Lovely views. Scary stairs to get up there. If you have issues with heights or stairs you make want to think twice. Worth trying to overcome your fear (I did...just lol) because the views are amazing.

My wife has an arthritic knee, so I visited Tintagel Castle by myself, as access is via a lot of quite difficult steps. I’m a long time King Arthur fan, and Tintagel Castle has been on my bucket list for some time, now I can...More

An interesting place to visit, and it's not just a castle. With great views across sea and sea cliffs. Make sure you go to the back of the site to see the King Arthur statue and down to the small beach and visit merlins cave
