Overview

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.

Went for an afternoon visit but the weather was very windy and the castle was closed, but still a beautiful walk and the views were breathtaking.

Stunning castle, beautiful ruins and amazing sea views. Information was excellent as well. Definitely not suitable for those who struggle with walking or stairs! Beach was so pretty also, really wished I’d brought swimwear.

Sorry for my delay, yes you can bring your 4 legged friend. If you wish to take the SUV back up to town, your dog is allowed as well (for a small fee)!
