Falmouth Pendennis Castle, Cornwall


  • Located in Falmouth, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Pendennis Castle is one of dozens of squat artillery forts built along the southern coast of England by Henry VIII in the mid-sixteenth century. Clearly visible across Carrick Roads is St Mawes Castle. Together, Pendennis Castle and St Mawes Castle protected Falmouth and its deep natural harbour from the threat of French and Spanish invasion
  • Built on Pendennis Point in Falmouth, Pendennis Castle offers spectacular views of Falmouth Bay and South Cornwall. We've positioned Pendennis Castle on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its exact location. On that satellite imagery, you'll see two car parks. The one to the north of the castle is the English Heritage visitor car park. The one to the south is for those wanting to take advantage of the views from Pendennis Point
  • If Henry VIII's artillery forts are of interest, visit also Fowey St Catherine's Castle
  • Other Cornwall castles we'd recommend visiting include Tintagel Castle, Launceston Castle and Restormel Castle
