About Tintagel Old Post Office

The village occupies an outstanding ruin strewn headland location, it is usually full of tourists all keen to follow in the wonderfully romantic footsteps of Arthur and his Knights.

The Old Post Office is maintained and cared for by The National Trust, it originated in the 14th century when it was thought to be a minor manor house, and is one of just a handful of humble ancient properties owned by the Trust and opened for public view.
