TINTAGEL (KING ARTHUR’S) CASTLE
TINTAGEL WEB
For visitors and locals alike, the walk from St Materiana's Church at Tintagel on the coastal footpath to the Castle, is a beautiful and breathtaking experience. The peace and tranquillity of the area is captured while you walk and take in the beauty of the rugged coastline. The special path is suitable for walkers and wheelchairs alike and takes you to near the Inner Walls of the Tintagel Castle. Many years ago the original Castle was split in two by the force of the sea and you now have to traverse some steep steps to arrive at the Castle gateway.  (You can however approach the bottom of the steps of the Castle on a different route via a Land Rover service). The Castle, which is in ruins,  was the fortress used by King Arthur in those long gone days and the Duchy of Cornwall are now owners of the property. It is operated and maintained by English Heritage.   The Castle Beach, is one of the safest bathing beaches in Cornwall though pebbly. It can now be navigated safely via newly built steps which re-opened in 2003. The famous Merlin's Cave can be discovered at the beach, which is set in beautiful surroundings.  There is a Tintagel Castle Information Centre with an Exhibition and Shop, adjacent toilets and across the road a Cafe serving hot and cold food. If you visit England you must visit Cornwall and Tintagel in particular, to enjoy such wonderful scenery.            See Rocky Valley For Information on Opening Times and Admission prices For Tintagel Castle Click Here
