Plans are afoot to give the public easier access to the alleged birthplace of King Arthur.
Two exciting new developments will transform access to the mysteries and drama of this breath-taking historic site.
According to the Cornish Guardian, Cornwall Council has recently approved plans to build a stunning, new, high-level, steel and oak bridge to connect the courtyards of the mainland to the remains of the castle on the island.
The tales of King Arthur and his queen, Guinevere, along with the enigmatic characters Lancelot, Merlin and Sir Gawain, have been the stuff of British legend for centuries, inspiring books, plays and films. Tintagel Castle, with its awe-inspiring cliff-top setting, has long been thought of as Arthur’s birthplace.
English Heritage, the guardians of the historic site, have also made plans with Google to enable the public to explore the castle more effectively online.
But, of course, nothing can equal the thrill of walking through the ruins themselves, listening to the echoes of centuries past.
