Tintagel Castle Castle Road, Tintagel PL34 0HE, England
We visited on a glorious but breezy day. The climb to the top is worth it just for the view of the bay and coastline around this amazing castle. If you get too tired to walk back up there is a Land Rover taxi service...More
Amazing location, amazing history amazing views.
But be aware of the steep and vast number of steps. Not a problem for us, but a number of folks were turning back giving up. Try not to give up, the hard work is worth it.
The ruined castle has an interesting story and the area affords great views along a beautiful stretch of coastline. There is a walk to the entrance from Tintagel, down walking out and up coming back which may tax some people. There is, though, a mini-bus...More
I took my family to see the castle and cave. This was probably my third time visiting but first time getting so close to the cave. It was quite busy as it was a warm day but still as interesting as ever. My grandson loved...More

As already said, parking is by the King's Arms Pub in the village itself. There is no parking of any description at the castle itself as far as I saw. Not sure whether you can park up overnight in the Pub car park. You'd have to check with them. The car park is a ten minute walk to the ticket office at the top. Or you can walk down and pay at the ticket offices by the castle.
