some of our favourite places in Cornwall

Pendennis Castle

Enjoy breathtaking views from Pendennis Castle, which was one of Henry VIII’s favourite coastal fortresses.

The castle has a long history of defending the country, as far back as the Tudor age and right up to its important role during both World Wars.

Walk to the top of the keep for the best views, then follow the trails around the grounds and learn more about the history of the castle. This truly spectacular national monument is not to be missed, and a true wonder for the history buffs among us!
