Shore Excursion, Museums / Culture, Local Experience, First Time Visitor


Kid Friendly: Yes. Reaching Tintagel castle involves a bit of a steep hike including precarious staircases and cliff edges. Reaching St Nectan's Glen requires a ten to fifteen minute walk each way through woodland and some river wading (wellies available). The Museum of Witchcraft is easier to access physically, but is still not for the fainthearted ;-)

Friendly: No.

Maximum travelers: 4

Explore these Coastal Gems of North Cornwall

Visit the legendary Tintagel headland on the raw North Cornish Coast. Roam the ruins of the medieval castle, mythological site of King Arthur's conception. If the weather's bad we can spend more time in the otherworldly Witchcraft Museum in neighboring Boscastle and if the weather's good we can visit the waterfall at St Nectan's Glen or ancient labyrinths carved many thousands of years ago into the rock nearby. . .


Our precise itinerary will depend on your location, timing and interests, also the weather as Tintagel is very exposed to the elements. We will visit Tintagel castle if at all possible, and also Boscastle village. Depending on the time available, weather conditions and your interests, we can visit the famous Museum of Witchcraft, St Nectan's Glen waterfall and/or ancient labyrinth rock carvings. We'll stop for refreshments at a historic pub or preferred cafe/restaurant.
