Visit Tintagel Castle, a dramatically located Cornish castle steeped in history and said to be the birthplace of King Arthur. Cross the spectacular new bridge whilst enjoying the jaw dropping coastal scenery. Walk along the castle ruins to see the statue of Gallos, an ancient king who keeps watch over the seas.
Next, visit Merlin’s Cave, said to be the home of the wizard Merlin from the legends of King Arthur. Next, either take the scenic coastal walk, or drive from Tintagel to Bossiney Haven, a small, picturesque cove with wonderful views of the sea. If the weather is permitting, enjoy some time here to sunbathe and swim. Heaven on earth!
