Tintagel Castle


Tintagel Castle, Cornwall
 
Tintagel Castle is a magical ruined castle in Cornwall, England.  People say that this castle is where King Arthur (of the Round Table fame) was born.  What remains of the castle is perched high on cliffs by the sea – and has spectacular views.
To get to the castle you have to negotiate about 100 steep steps – so it isn't for everyone.  But if you get the chance do go and see it.

Unfortunately there is an admission fee.  Oh for the days when heritage buildings/castles etc were free!
The land on which the castle stands is owned by the Duke of Cornwall ie Prince Charles but the castle is administered by English Heritage.

  2. Magical is the word to describe the castle, Carole. You can almost believe king Arthur actually lived there. I love Cornwall.
