Overview
More
A 3.6 mile walk on part of the South West Coast Path around Tintagel, made a romantic destination for Victorian tourists by poets such as Tennyson, whose 'Idyll of the Kings' set the tale of King Arthur in what is still one of Britain's most visited resorts. A brilliant walk for children, who will love the atmospheric ruins of 'King Arthur's castle' on Tintagel Island.

The walk down to the beach and then to the cliff and to the castle ruins is great on the way down but I recommend getting the range rover transport back up to the street. There is a good gift shop and cafe down here.

The SWCP is 630 miles long and this walk only covers a small part - but a particularly beautiful part. Stunning coastline... Stunning walk! 2323

The walk is stunning with views all around and there seemed to be a real air of peace while doing this walk. I went around 6am when there was no one around apart from the sounds of the birds and the crashing of the waves....More

Challenging I places but worth the effort Stunning views of the promontory. Passing onwards to the church and Youth Hostel there are great views. There is a wheelchair friendly path from the car park by the church which is a great idea.

Very steep steps to get to the top but well worth it for the views! Would recommend getting there early as when we left to walk back down the queue was HUGE heading up and not moving at all on the steps going up!

An absolute must when in the area. Stunning cliff top views with breathtaking scenery. Usual precautions necessary with excited children in high places but don’t let that stop you from visiting. Current 148 steps will cease to exist next year when the ‘bridge’ is reinstated...More

A wondeful route, gaze at the sea s you walk by. Not particularly steep steps but not good for people in wheelchairs or with limited mobility. There is a landrover, but I am unsure as to if it fits wheelchairs. But yes, if you are...More

The scenery here is beautiful, big cliffs, crashing waves and probably seals and you can look across to the castle. So personally i think yes as still lots to see. If you've spare time, stroll a bit further south along the... More
