Tintagel is situated on the North
coast of Cornwall and is renowned for its association with the legend
of King Arthurand his
Knights of the Round Table. The magic of the association is captured
particularly by the castle, King
Arthur's Castle, which is reached by steps leading from the main land.
Originally the Castle was attached to the main land but by erosion over the
years a bridge had to be built. It is a hard climb to the top but well worth it.
The Castle is maintained by English Heritage. There are many beaches in the
area, for surfers Trebarwith and Bossiney are the main
attractions, but the Castle
Beach is renowned as a very safe bathing beach. For the visitor to Tintagel
there are many attractions to see in the village apart from the cliffs area.
Nearby is the lovely village ofBoscastle, Delabole, Camelford and the pretty fishing village, Port Isaac.
