There are few places in England more romantic than Tintagel, where history and legend are completely interwoven. A place to experience the beauty and wildness of the Cornish coastline. A place to feel in touch with the distant past.

Legend connects the site with King Arthur. It is not surprising that Cornwall has been called the Land of Merlin. However, the castle dates from c.1145, centuries after King Arthur lived, but a monastery was founded in A.D. 500. For many, Tintagel Castle has become a pilgrimage. The ruins stand on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on what has become almost an island connected by a narrow neck of rock.
