Timed tickets

We have introduced timed tickets to help protect the archaeology and ecology of Tintagel Castle. All visitors, including members, will now need a timed ticket to enter the castle, cross the bridge and explore the island.

Timed tickets are available to book in advance online. Booking ahead is strongly advised to guarantee entry on the day and at the time you would like. There will be a small number of walk-up tickets each day, subject to availability, and at busy times these could all be sold out.
