Getting there

The Museum of Witchcraft & Magic is located in The Harbour in Boscastle, Cornwall. Boscastle is on the North coast of Cornwall between Tintagel and Bude.

The Museum is a 5 minute, flat walk from the village car park. Access for wheelchair users has been improved but the museum is an old building on two levels so a stair lift has been fitted (not a chair lift). Those who cannot access the upper floor may view the lower galleries free of charge.

Additional info

No toilets on site, but National Trust Visitor Centre & Cafe is just next door. Also, the Harbour Light Cafe is just opposite the Museum. These facilities available during normal opening hours (10am - 4pm)
