Tintagel, Cornwall, England, is a cute little town nestled on the cliffs of the northern shores of Cornwall. It is most famous for the Tintagel Castle, which is an English Heritage site that you can go and visit and learn about the history of the area dating back to when the castle was built in the twelfth century. It once covered the entire headland, but due to corrosion of the rock face, the castle now stands over two separate mounds that can be a little steep and slippery to navigate.

The town itself is small, but has some really cute cafes and pasty shops (you cannot go to Cornwall and miss out on a pasty, so you should definitely have one of these meat-and-vegetable-filled pastries). There are also plenty of cliffside walks that you can do around the area, heading all the way over to the stunning town of Boscastle a few miles away. There is also a stunning waterfall walk up to the St. Nectan's Glen just a short drive out of the Tintagel center as well. The best way to get in and around these northern coastal towns of Cornwall is with a car and through walking depending on how much time you have, but there is definitely a lot to see and explore around this area. The majority of the small towns only have a couple of kilometers between each, so you can hop from town to town exploring.

Your options for a hostel in Tintagel, Cornwall, England, are limited; what exists will place you outside the town centre by about a fifteen- to twenty-minute walk.
