OPENING TIMES

Open any reasonable time during daylight hours

St Catherine’s Castle - thus named after the headland on which it stands - was commissioned by Henry VIII after his break from Rome left the UK under potential threat from Catholic Europe. Steeped in history, over the centuries, the castle has in turn been abandoned, utilised and added to, right up until the second world war. It is a fascinating insight into the history of the South West’s military defences.

Now under the protection of English Heritage, the ruinous castle is a fantastic place to explore; around the not to mention the exceptional views over Fowey which, especially on a clear day, are absolutely stunning. Parking is less than a mile away at Ready Money Cove car park and the site welcomes dogs as long as they are kept on leads.
