Tintagel Castle

Please note that Tintagel Castle is currently closed for the construction of a new footbridge. Throughout the build there will be no access to the castle ruins, and the Land Rover service is not in operation. The cafe and the exhibition remain open, as well as Tintagel beach (subject to closures). We will announce the date that Tintagel Castle with its new footbridge will re-open as soon as possible. Tintagel village with all its cafes, shops and attractions remains fully open as does the South West Coast Path.
