I parked in the lot adjacent to the Visitors Centre on my recent visit to Tintagel, for a 5 hour stay in the village, & never having been there before, was glad to step inside. It was certainly what most seasoned travelers might expect of such a place, what with various brochures highlighting area attractions like Tintagel Castle or King... More

Called in on way walking through the town. Quite a bit of information around but the staff weren't exactly forthcoming with greetings or assistance. Very few people there but they were discussing their own affairs rather than being proactive with the visitors. A case in point - we know about the castle of course and the post office - but...

Tintagel Castle offered a great day out. Plenty to see and do but plenty of steps to climb! Cafe offered good options for drinks and food.

I tend not to review visitor information centres as many are little more than a dispensary for leaflets. This one is situated in a rather attractive and modern building and, as well as the usual array of pamphlets and maps has some interesting displays. It has a decent little tourist shop and, of course, friendly and helpful staff.

If you need advise about how to get to Tintagel Castle do not ask at the Visitors Centre. The ladies there, though obviously well-meaning, are quite clueless. I remembered about the jeeps going from the village down to the castle entrance and back from a previous visit but could not recall where to get these. So the obvious thing was... More
