Tintagel is in an area designated by Europe as a Special Area of Conservation. We are also in an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the Island and Castle are protected by the National Heritage.
Tintagel in 1259 known as Trewarvene, in 1284 known as TREVENE, in 1399 known as TREVENA and originally known as TRE-WAR-VENETH ‘farm on the hill’ For centuries Tintagel with its powerful atmosphere has been a place of inspiration for poets, composers and artists, including Turner and Tennyson. More recently Tintagel’s magnificent scenery has delighted the modern equivalents of the movie and television program makers from home and abroad. The dramatic setting of Tintagel castle, straddling the mainland and the island, seems to give credence to the myths and legends associated with it. Reputedly the ruins we see today were built on the site of an ancient fortress that would have been used by the ancient kings of Cornwall. We are convinced that our King Arthur was one of these kings. Today’s remains date from 1236 and the Earl Richard , second son of King John. The castle was added to during the 14th century by Edward he Black Prince, who was the 1st Duke of Cornwall. By the 17th century the ruins that survived had become known as King Arthur’s Castle. The relentlessly pounding seas around our coastline have taken its toll on the landscape and much of the land that was around the castle has fallen away.
