King Arthur’s Footprint

At Tintagel Castle, there is a footprint-like carving located on an outcrop of rock known as the Island on Tintagel Island. It is a natural geological feature that has been associated with the legendary King Arthur.

The footprint is a roughly rectangular shape with an indentation that is said to resemble a footprint. According to local folklore and legend, this is where King Arthur is said to have placed his foot when he was crowned as the King of the Britons.
