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.

Warning - while it isn't an ultra challenge attraction, be prepared for the schlep from the village down to the cove then up to the castle. The steps are narrow and you get to know the other visitors as you rub by during the ascent...More

No the car park is in the town and the castle is about under half a mile from there. There are numerous car parks near to the path to the castle.

I saw coaches that went there, but they seemed to be more specific travel groups, like schools or group holidays. Maybe try contacting national trust who run the site to find out about public transport, they might know more.
