About Tintagel Castle - Kastel Dintagel

This cliff-edge castle, long associated with the legend of King Arthur, offers a day out that?s 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.

Discover how it developed from a thriving trading port and royal stronghold, to a castle of romantic legend.
Make the most of eye-catching outdoor sculptures and information posts to explore the ruins. The centrepiece is an 8-foot tall bronze sculpture inspired by the legends of King Arthur and Tintagel?s royal past.

Head down to the beach to see if you can spot Merlin?s face carved into the rocks. Visit the café on the way down for a taste of Cornwall.

Please note that Tintagel Castle is now closed until June for the construction of a new footbridge. Throughout the build there will be no access to the castle, beach, cafe and visitor centre. Find out more about the landmark project here.
