Tintagel

Dramatically set atop steep cliffs and possessing stunning views, Tintagel castle is the mythical home of King Arthur. Nearby in the old Post Office, the sagging roof, tiny rooms and period furnishings provide a fascinating glimpse into the nature of domestic life more than 100 years ago.

This Medieval castle is now only joined to the mainland by a thin strip of land. The ruins date from the 12th and 13th centuries and walking up and down the steep paths and steps takes you around what is left of these amazing ruins. Used in the 5th and 6th centuries as trading settlement of Celtic Kings, Tintagle castle is defiantly worth a visit.

Originally a 14th Century manor house, the beautiful old Post Office building became the Post Office in 1844 and served in that role until 1872. It fell into disrepair over the next 20 years, but concerned local people saved it from demolition, arranged a careful restoration and handed it over to the National Trust in 1903.
