Constructed between 1540 and 1545, Pendennis and its sister St Mawes Castle form the Cornish end of the chain of coastal castles built by Henry VIII to counter a threat from France and Spain. Thereafter, Pendennis Castle was frequently adapted to face new enemies over 400 years, right through until World War II. Interesting and offers stunning views across the Roseland Pennisula. It's a train to Falmouth, then a brisk walk or catch a bus.
