Tintagel Head


A fantastic windswept headland with the remains of a medieval settlement, plenty of Arthurian legend and a number of hard, adventurous and 'out-there' routes.

The long standing arrangement for climber's access with English Heritage (who own the site) has, at least for the time being, been removed by English Heritage which is a disappointing development.
