King Arthur's Tintagel
Tintagel is best known for its connection with King Arthur and its many shops, inns and houses reflect this with Arthurian connotations in their names. The dramatic setting of the legend is unsurpassed with the Castle Ruins spanning from the mainland to the Island and the panoramic rugged coast line of north Cornwall.
The village is a pleasing place to wander around, where you can browse the shops and enjoy an afternoon Cornish Cream Tea.
Tintagel offers a weekly market on a Thursday during the summer months and the ever popular village Carnival in August.
Situated on the wild and exposed cliff top known as Glebe Cliff to the south of Tintagel Village, the Parish Church of St Materiana's has many qualities of interest to the visitor including a font originally from the castle chapel and a Roman milestone once built into the lychgate.
A short walk along the cliff brings you to Tintagel Castle and Merlin’s Cave. Head back into the village to see the Old Post Office and King Arthur’s Great Halls.
