This week we’re discovering the stories of Tintagel Castle – a clifftop fortress where history and legend intertwine.
A land of Cornish kings
Perched on the north Cornwall coast, Tintagel Castle is one of the most spectacular historic sites in Britain. Its association with King Arthur also makes it one of the most famous.
These days it’s not difficult to catch a glimpse of Cornwall on the small screen, what with Poldark, Doc Martin, and Delicious on the main channels and repeats of Wycliffe usually on some more obscure channel. All these programs act as great adverts for the county, showing its scenery off behind the drama being played out in the foreground.
