Grand Medieval Jousts
Stretch those legs with a stroll along the seafront, breath in the sea air and head for the unmissable sight of Pendennis Castle perched on its headland and watching over Falmouth Bay. Built over 450 years ago by Henry VIII the granite stronghold sits opposite its sister castle in St Mawes making a powerful defence for the entrance to Falmouth harbour.
Every Tuesday & Wednesday in August, Pendennis Castle
