Pirates Ahoy at Pendennis
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.
Get out that eyepatch, don your best stripy tee and practise those ‘avasts’ and ‘arggghh’s’ – pirates have taken over Pendennis. Its time for fearsome tales of peg-legged deeds as you discover the pirating past of Falmouth’s castle. Behave you wretches, or you’ll be keel-hauled!
