From the time of Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin, Tintagel Castle sits on the Cornish coast, perched atop a deep blue tempestuous sea on a beautiful stretch of coastline.
Arthur and his father, Uther Pendragon date from around the 5th century. And while it’s not proven in fact, they have long been associated with Tintagel. Legend has it Arthur was born at Tintagel.
It’s just ruins now, but there is something incredibly magical about Tintagel Castle. The ruins are in fact of the castle built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, in 1233 on the Arthurian site.
When you lay your hands on the stones I swear you can feel the history surging through you.
Settle on the grass, overlooking the ruins and the surging sea, the chilly wind blowing at you, and let your mind wander. It’s an enchanted place. Sitting here, I can believe in magic.
Tintagel is in northern Cornwall, South West England.
