Fans of Arthur, Merlin, Pendragon, and Morgana are in for a treat. A footbridge has been constructed to the ruins of Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, England, where King Arthur is said to have been conceived. Previously, visitors had to climb 148 steep steps to reach the site; now, it’s as easy as crossing a 223-foot bridge over a rocky ravine.
In the legend, Uther Pendragon had been transformed by Merlin to resemble Igraine’s husband, the Duke of Cornwall, to spend the night with her. Pendragon supposedly crossed the canyon that visitors can now traverse to reach Arthur’s mother.
