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.

An interesting place to visit, and it's not just a castle. With great views across sea and sea cliffs. Make sure you go to the back of the site to see the King Arthur statue and down to the small beach and visit merlins cave

Do not miss this. The climb is not as bad as it looks and the views are some of the most dramatic I've ever seen. They give you a lot of stories and history about the sites, so it is really interesting from that perspective...More

Yes you can but would advise when on the castle that you keep them on a leash due to amount of steep drop offs. You will struggle up the steps too.

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
