Tintagel in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... this all year round as I visited in chilly February! There are numerous shops, hotels, eateries all which seems to be themed on the King Arthur Legend all have names like 'Ye Olde Sweetshop" and every shop seems to sell a huge variety of plastic swords and wooden shields. Some noteworthy places: King Arthur's Great Hall - A building which built in the 1930's now houses lots of round tables and granite thrones. The most interesting thing here for me were all the stained glass windows, which were actually designed by a pupil of William Morris , showing various scenes from the Arthur legend. It was £3 entry for an adult. The Old Post O... more

Tintagel is found on the North coast of Cornwall and if famous for its association with King Arthur and the Knights of the round table. It is reasonably easy to get to by car or public transport, I won't bore you with extensive details but traveline.org.uk is a great website for journey planning. If you travel by car there are 8 car parks in and around the village, which when you're first arriving is quite amusing as each has a sign saying or something similar "Close to Castle only X meters away", in decreasing increments until you reach this one "Closest to Castle". It is worth noting that the closer the carpark the more expensive the ... Read the complete review

I had great memories of visiting Tintagel with my parents when I was a child, and when we holidayed in Devon recently I wanted to revisit it, despite it being in the next county (Cornwall) We drove (well, my missus did) into Tintagel via Boscastle and she didn't thank me for taking her round a hairpin at the bottom of a fairly steep hill! ;) Anyway, we pulled into Tintagel and spotted a car park with a visitor/tourist information centre so we pulled in and paid £5 for a day's parking. When we walked through the village though we spotted that we could have parked for less than half that price. The visitor centre appeared to be very ... Read the complete review

This was one of my favourite days out when we holidayed in Cornwall last year. It's a really magical place with lots to see and do and I highly recommend a visit there. Tintagel is situated on the North Coast of Cornwall. It's set in a really beautiful spot amongst Cornwall's finest beaches and bays. On the way to Tintagel itself we passed by the nearby Port Isaac and decided to stop off there for a walk as we thought it looked very pretty. If you have time do try and stop here on your way to Tintagel - its a glorious little town. There is a picturesque fishing village as well as a pretty beach and some fantastic clifftop walks to be done. I didn't realise ... Read the complete review

While visiting Cornwall this year, we ventured out to Tintagel, round lots of windy roads, well that's the way my sat nav took me. Tintagel is a small Cornish village it is situated on the Atlantic coast of Cornwall. Car park has a pay meter we paid around £2.70 for 4 hours. There was a choice of prices depending how long you wished to stay. There is a Castle Information Centre with an Exhibition and Shop and a café just across from it were we had a nice pot of local tea. There is a walk along the coast path from Tintagel to Boscastle.I never did this but there seemed to be plenty of people walking it. The high street in Tintagel has a ... Read the complete review

Tintagel is situated at the very northerly end of the north cornish coast and to be honest if you're staying at the vey souwthwest corner, its one hell of a drive to get here!. Its a very small picturesque little place all centred aroun d the legend of King Arther and the 'remains' of his castle can be see and visited if you have the courage to go up there! Every shop you go by sells King Arthur and Arthurian legend merchandise, they have really jumped on the bandwagon here! There isn't a lot here or in the area, a very small little beach and the usual cafe's and souvenir shops and as picturesque as this place is, I wouldn't venture up ... Read the complete review
