High on the rugged Cornwall coast perches Tintagel Castle, steeped in legend and mystery. It is said to be the site of conception of King Arthur and even boasts of Merlin’s Cave, right below the castle ruins.
The castle is hidden from the main part of the town. They do offer rides for those who aren’t able to make the walk or want to conserve their energy.
A waterfall into the ocean –of course the beauty of this place inspires legends!
This site will leave you breathless –literally, the stairs are steep and plenty.

The site is believed to have been occupied during the Romano-British times (1st century AD) but the castle was built in 1233 by the 1st Earl of Cornwall (Richard).
