Tintagel Castle

Tintagel Castle


Set high on a craggy peninsular overlooking a dramatic stretch of Cornish coast, Tintagel Castle offers much more than regular English Heritage ruins. According to legend, this was the stronghold of King Arthur and the remains of a Dark Ages settlement – not to mention Merlin’s Cave – add weight to the enjoyable mythology.
