A tale of two castles
Pendennis Castle was built on the Falmouth side and between the two castles they had the entire entrance to the Fal Estuary within canon range. The castle is clover leaf shaped, elaborately decorated and offers spectacular panoramic views of the crystal clear waters below.
The castle has retained much of its original Tudor design and is surrounded by beautiful landscaped grounds and gardens.
