PLEASE CLICK FOR FULL INFORMATION.SOCIAL HALL NOTICE
Due to the severe weather forecast for Friday and Saturday, Tintagel Castle with its new footbridge will now re-open on Sunday 11th August. As you know it is normal procedure to close access to the island side of Tintagel Castle when high winds (Gale Force 8 and above) are forecast. I understand and share everyone’s disappointment but we can’t control the weather!
We will be contacting all Friday and Saturday’s tickets holders by email today to explain the new arrangements. Bookings for this Friday will be honoured for the same timeslots on Sunday and similarly booking for Saturday will carry across to the Monday at the same times. Those who can’t make the new dates will be able to arrange a refund or rebook.
We will therefore continue to send staff to the visitor centre on Friday and Saturday to respond to any enquiries. From Sunday onwards all my staff will need to be on site so we will be unable to support the visitor centre once we are fully reopened.
At the moment the forecast is a little wet, but not too windy on Thursday for the residents preview, so we are still planning to go ahead with this.

The works at Tintagel Castle are almost complete and we will reopen on Friday 9th August. We’re really looking forward to visitors experiencing our spectacular new bridge!
For the first time we are introducing timed tickets at Tintagel Castle, which will be available to book in advance on our website from Wed 31 Jul. Booking ahead is advised for all our visitors, including English Heritage members, to guarantee admission on the day and at the time you would like.
Ahead of this opening we are inviting all residents of Tintagel Parish to an exclusive preview of the site on Thursday 8 August from 16.30 – 19.00, to experience the castle and footbridge themselves. Residents who wish to attend should arrive at the Castle entrance between 16.30 and 18.00 with a recent utility or council tax bill as evidence of their address within the Parish. The land rover service will be operational at this time.
