With its bright and airy decor which reflects the coastal setting, the Beach Cafe is the perfect place for a tasty snack, light lunch, cream tea or delicious home-made cake.
The main shop is located at the Visitor Centre and sells a range of Medieval and Arthurian souvenirs, including toy swords, books, tapestries and other English Heritage gifts.
Toilets are available next to the Visitor Centre and shop, including a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities. There are no toilets on the island.
Dogs are welcome at Tintagel Castle, but please note there are lots of steps, cliff edges and nesting birds, so please keep them safe on leads.
An exhibition featuring exhibits in the shape of oversized books offers an introduction to Tintagel Castle through the ages. Historic artefacts and book sculptures tell the story of how fact and fiction have contributed to the history of this iconic landmark.
There are extensive grounds with fantastic sea views, providing a wonderful location for wildlife and bird watchers. Limited resting points. No cycle paths. Informal grassed areas around the ruins. Lots of running around space.
Baby changing facilities are available in the toilets next to the Visitor Centre and shop.
A childrens' menu is available.
The rough terrain and number of steps mean that buggies and pushchairs cannot be used in some areas of the site. There is space available for pushchairs and buggies next to the Visitor Centre, and you are welcome to leave these here at your own risk.
We have a limited number of baby carriers for hire for use around the castle. These are booked on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact the site on 01840 770328.
Educational visits must be booked in advance. Visit our Schools page to find out more.
