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.

As part of our Halloween holiday Tintagel Castle provided all of the atmosphere and magic that we were seeking. The amazing coastal walk from Boscastle added to the mysticism and although there were some very steep and challenging parts on both the walk and in...More

Was really pleased to go back and visit Tintagel. Beware its a steep walk down to the beach and a VERY long walk back to the top! Stunning waterfall and you can actually get onto the beach now and explore the caves.

We had the best day exploring the remains of the castle at Tintagel. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day which was truly the icing on the cake. The property is run by English Heritage and costs and £8.70 ( including gift aid). If...More

Tintagel Castle is a very impressive historic site. The views are fantastic and the whole area seeps history. Be prepared though, there are plenty of steep steps to trudge up and down as you take in the sights. The amazing ghostly King Arthur sculpture is...More

Really amazing views but alot of climbing up steps, some being really high. A few low level wall ruins. Didn't go on the coastal path though. At £25 each it's over priced.

Absolutely amazing experience. We got there early and it wasn't too busy. Steps up to castle can be hairy as it was very windy on the day we visited and if you are not good with heights it may not be the place for you....More

If you have mobility problems, this is not the place for you - there are lots of steep steps and a long walk back uphill to the car park (or you can pay £2 per head each way and use the land rover shuttle service)....More

Went to see if we could find King Arthur. Tintagel is a nice little town with plenty pubs and eateries. The castle is stunning and well worth the walk down and back up again

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)!

I don't have children so I'm not sure how helpful I can be. To get to the cafe and main base should be fine as you can always take the minibus which travels up and down the hill frequently but to get to the actual ruins... More
