Tintagel Castle 18 April 2014 239

Cornish: Tre war Venydh


The Cornish name for Tintagel; tre war venydh actually translates to 'village on a mountain'. The area has long been associated with the legend of King Arthur and Tintagel Castle is simply a must-see attraction. In fact, Tintagel Castle is one of the UK's most visited attractions!


Tintagel itself is a lovely town; parking and local facilities are excellent.


The stunning turquoise/green water around this coast is actually caused by the slate/sand around Tintagel which contains elements of copper: strong sunlight turns the water a light turquoise green colour in warm weather!
