The Old Post Office sums it up for me - the Village, the generations of Community, the layers of interaction, the needs. I don't buy the King arthur stuff but I buy the sense of Community.

The Old Post Office was closed when we visited, but we enjoyed standing outside it, taking photographs & being amazed it is still standing. What a delightful place. Worth a detour.

There isn't too much one can do here, but it's a very unique building because of its age. Amazing to be standing over all these years and it does show by the sag in the roof. At least stop and take a photo!!!

We visited today after finding this quaint old Post Office as we explored Tintagel. We paid around £10 for entry for two adults. There is no parking but there are several car parks nearby. The attraction consists of five rooms and has been maintained to...More

This old post office was interesting as well as a beautiful setting to visit and relax in the garden. There were several models of the post office dotted around the grounds and we very much enjoyed our visit.
