If you are visiting the area of Tintagel the Castle is a must. The scenery and ruins are stunning.
Great historic location and fantastic views but not a lot of ruins to look at! Worth a visit if you have not been before. A bit of s climb but a new land bridge for 2019.
This cliff-edge castle, long associated with the legend of King Arthur, offers a day out that is as rich in adventure as it is in history. Straddling both the mainland and a weather-worn headland jutting out to sea, the site opens up a wild landscape bearing the imprint of centuries of habitation.
King Arthur's castle is perched in a stunning location just outside the village of Tintagel. It is a fair drive to get there (the roads are pretty long and winding), but worth the trip. If you go, I'd recommend a trip to nearby Port Isaac too, which is probably better for food and drink than…
The new bridge opens in August 2019, and the views and the old castle ruins are amazing
The main attractions are the new bridge (do you dare to look down through the gap in the middle?) across to the castle ruins and the ghostly statue of King Arthur in the middle of the headland. It's quite expensive (currently £16 each - free for English Heritage members) but worth doing just once.
Tintagel is only 7 miles away with its new spectacular bridge taking visitors high above the sea below to reach the enchanted island.
