As well as the castle there are many more fine old sites apparently relating to King Arthur's mystical past, including King Arthur's Great Halls which fully explains the legend in all its glory. Other historical buildings include 'The Old Post Office' (see picture) and St Materianna's church on the cliffs.
Tintagel is strategically placed being only three miles from Boscastle, with its renowned harbour and fishing village, and in walking distance of the beautiful St Nectans Glen and the Rocky Valley with its hieroglyphic carvings. It is ideally situated to explore Bodmin Moor and indeed the whole of Cornwall and Devon.
For the sun worshippers there are several safe bathing beaches nearby, including Tintagel Cove, Bossiney, Benoath and Trebarwith Strand (about 2 miles away), renowned for its rock pools and surfing. All the beaches are completely covered at high tide.
