Tintagel is a small village, situated in the centre of a rugged coastline and is a popular destination for visitors to Cornwall. Its connection with the life of the mystical legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table being a big attraction. The dramatic castle is reached by a bridge and steps leading from the main land to Tintagel Island. It’s quite a climb to the top, but well worth it. The Castle is maintained by English Heritage.
