Loved Tintagel and the history. The museums are wonderful, and brilliant for disabled people as it's quite flat and everything is in walking distance. Lovely friendly people. Pubs restuarants are good.

A very beautiful place to visit and interesting to find out all about the order. You can also find out more about King Arthur and his knights. In the bookshop are both books for young and for old and lovely souvenirs.

A great place to visit on a wet day. Educational for children and adults, the legend of King Arthur explained in an entertaining manner.

This space, which doubles as venue for weddings & other festivities, as well as a location for film & television shoots, is an homage to the myth & history of King Arthur & his knights. There is an impressive selection of books & other items for purchase in the lobby, but I do recommend saving that until after you've spent... More

It stands on the site of the ancient Town Hall and mayoral offices. It originally had 19 bedrooms and. Editor Cook died in 1868 and the house became a holiday home. The house... More

If you are interested in the legend of King Arthur the halls are a must see. The staff are very friendly and the main hall with the round tables and throne very impressive. Prior to entering the main hall there is a voice over presentation detailing the legend of King Arthur and there are numerous plate glass windows depicting the... More

Absolutely fabulous! Well worth a visit. We weren't sure we had found the right place as the signage doesn't do it justice. They could easily charge twice the admission fee and it would still be great value! So much history!

Went in to the display and were greeted by a cheerful and friendly man who chatted while we waited to go in to the display. This is totally a great attraction. We had been to another Arthurian attraction which was awful so were a bit cautious about this one. The contrast was out of this world. An excellent light show... More

As the title says, don't judge a book by its cover. The entrance to the building really doesn't do this attraction justice, it is an absolute hidden gem! I visited the halls whilst holidaying in the village and couldn't believe the amount there was to see and do, it really is a cracking place. For someone with limited knowledge on... More

Do not be put off by the outside look of this wonderful place. Inside there is a short talk and light show and then visitors can wander freely through the great hall and look at the historic and magnificent stained glass windows. Definitely worth the entrance fee. Do not miss it if visiting Tintagel
