OPENING TIMES

Pendennis Castle was originally constructed between 1540 and 1545 with it’s sister castle in St Mawes. They were built by Henry VIII to counter a threat from France and Spain. During Elizabeth I’s reign in 198 a new and larger defence rampart was added to the original fort. The Castle was fortified again before the Civil War and Charles II stayed there before sailing to the Isles of Scilly. Following that, it then endured 5 months of siege before becoming the penultimate Royal garrison on the British mainland to surrender.

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries the castle continued to play an active role in history and it saw significant action during World War II. Pendennis was the Command Centre for Cornwall, protecting not only the Cornish but the extremely important port of Falmouth. There is a wonderful interactive Discovery Centre allowing visitors to experience the underground Victorian and World War II defences complete with sounds and smells!

There is also the 16th century keep to explore with its battlements and Tudor gun-deck, complete with the sights and sounds of a fierce battle. With 450 years of history on show, Pendennis provides a wonderful family day out with so much to explore.
