These ruins have been very sensitively preserved while maintaining relatively easy access. It is an awe inspiring journey back in time and worth a visit. The staff were interested and helpful. We had great weather, a bonus given the location. I would highly recommend giving...More

This is the castle where King Arthur was allegedly born. It is a large area with castle ruins and a great view of the cliffs.

The view from Tintagel castle is well worth the climb up the steep steps, they are magnificent. Also it is lovely to be able to take our dog.

It's a steep climb to the top but the castle is well worth a visit if you want to explore Tintagel. Stunning views from the top.

We went to the castle late May and had a really great day in tintagel. The entrance fee was about £9 each but was well worth it as it's a good 2 hour activity or longer. The site itself is huge with lots of different...More

The amount of castle still in place will disappoint many, but further afield on the headland is an amazing Medieval building foundations. Certainly not a typical village-- these were well-off traders-- but so neat to be able to make out something of a plan (well,...More

You need to be reasonably fit to do this walk as it involves lots of steep steps and hills to climb over If you can do it the views are magnificent and it's really interesting and well worth the admission price

As a bit of a history nerd with a love of the dark ages I was looking forward to having a look at Tintagel Castle. As you'd imagine a lot of the older stuff has been repeatedly built over, but the medieval buildings are still...More

There is so much to see in Cornwall and we have so little time. We would like to visit to Tintagel Castle. What is the minimum amount of time to make a visit worthwhile and what is a reasonable amount of time to spend? We are 70/72 yrs old and in good health but may not with to climb all the steps. Can we still have a good view?

You can use the Land Rover shuttle to get to and from the base of the cliff. Merlin's Cave and the shoreline are places of interest, but the main event (so to speak) is the castle and the views up there. It's a long steep... More
