The Pendennis Castle is always a treat to the eyes and this massive structure indeed has a strong historical background. In order to protect Roman and French invaders, this castle got established between the years 1540 to 1542. Since its debut, the castle has served brilliantly as artillery. Even in the periods of First and Second World War, the castle played its part actively. Now the castle is a heritage building which tourists can explore. Friendly and knowledgeable staffs elaborate English history in a responsive way which you will surely like to listen. You can check out old guns, canons and many other types of ammunitions here.

Pendennis Castle Reviews & Ratings
Fantastic day with Tudor knights and sword fighting. We loved battling each other and the Mike and Carlos who ran this activity were very entertaining. Thank you for a great living history experience.
Beautiful place to visit with ample parking, nice little cafe and little souvenir shop. Plenty of information and loads to look at. THE TOUR IS A MUST. The gentleman (Sargent Steve?) who took the group around we were in was brilliant. Acted the part, was full of information and engaged every one to join in. Really enjoyed our day. Will be revisiting next year. Also it's English Heritage run. With hundreds of sites across the UK. Definitely worth joining.
Great heritage site! Kids get to learn our proud history and the sacrifices soldiers made to ensure our future. Cafe is a little expensive so if your on a budget pack your own lunches. 3pm gun firing of old WWI Turret highlight of my day. Great day out
Brilliant example of defences over time. Child friendly with wonderful activities and I really liked the addition of the volunteer guide (Steve?) in WW1 uniform. He engaged both my children and myself with his engaging way of imparting history.
Lovely views not really much of a castle in the truest sense of the word but there's plenty to look at. And if you go on an event day like the jousting days there are many extra entertaining shows to watch. English Heritage members get in for free but additional charges apply on event days. Pics are all event content, I figure there are enough pictures of the site already.
