Tintagel Island is the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Set on the wild and rugged coastline of North Cornwall, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this is a magical place full of history and legend.

We visit the 12th Century ruins of the castle and the Celtic remains of chapels and houses. We descend to the legendary Merlin’s Cave where it is said the spirit of the great sage still resides. And in a sense he does.

Then we visit the nearby St Nectan’s Fairy Glen, set in an enchanted valley with its huge waterfall, its hermitage and Celtic chapel. A beautiful, rather moving place to visit.

Cost: £320

This is the total price. The per person price decreases according to the number of participants. For example, the cost of the tour for one person is £320, for four people it would be £80 per person.
