I have to admit that Tintagel disappointed me a bit. I was hoping for a bit more but then I suppose the wonderful vista’s more than made up for the lack of walls and stuff. oh! and by the way, we had the most excellent Cornish pasties at Tintagel so that was good as well
We didn't go down to the castle proper as Ma’s knee was hurting badly so we just drove into this hotel and peered at the castle from a bit of distance. I took these photographs from the hotel car park so apologies if you were hoping to get some close up’s of Arthur’s crib or something.
Apparently Uther Pendragon, King Arthur’s daddy, got transformed into some other chap by Merlin and he sneaked into this castle and had his way with his mum who was married to this other chap. Hence Arthur was born here. Ha! likely story, Arthur’s mum tupping with the guest more like it. Here is the slideshow if you don't want to read the whole commentary stuff, with some more pics.
