Tintagel, is perhaps King Arthur's home town, for high on the cliffs is the famous ruined castle.
Tourist shops abound and the town is a bit tacky with the never ending stream of coaches visiting in the summer.
The town, one main street, does have THE BEST Cornish pasty shop we've found, all they sell is pasties, vegie pasties and normal. Big, a bit expensive, but great, buy one to take home. ON the right as you walk towards the castle.
The post office is interesting as it is a small manor house dating from the 14th century.
The castle is around a small cove, running over a couple of hill tops. Steep steps and walkways give excellent views. Is it the castle of legend? probably it was the castle of Reginald Earl of Cornwall in the 12th Century, rather than the birthplace of King Arthur.
Around the coast Boscastle is well worth a wander around.
