Tintagel is actually built half on the mainland and the other half is a rugged headland overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Access to Tintagel Castle is via a spectacular bridge and is managed by English Heritage. Tintagel is steeped in history and legends dating back to the Roman times, but it's the association with King Arthur which makes it one of the most famous reasons to visit. If you have a chance to go over to the island it is well worth the visit. There are plenty of shops and places to eat in Tintagel too. There’s a lovely walk from the King Arthurs Arms car park, turn right and then left after the Cornishman Inn, walk along the road called Vicarage Hill which will bring you to St Materiana's Church which sits on the cliff top. The views from the churchyard are quite spectacular, then follow the South West Coast Path back to the village along Glebe Cliff, the path takes you under the bridge over to the island. Follow the steps down and don’t forget to look for Merlin’s cave then follow the road back up into the village. Parking Fore Street, Tintagel, PL34 0DA parking in King Arthur's Arms pub. It’s £4 for an overnight stay, so if you want to make a day of it, park up the night before so you can head out early in the morning over to the island. If you occupy two bays with your motorhome all you need to do is pay for two bays. Don’t forget to book your tickets with English Heritage at least a few days before your visit https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/tintagel-castle/
