All reviews english heritage henry viii half moon battery tudor times gun emplacements first world war sound effects guided tour military history disabled parking well worth a visit fantastic views birds of prey lots of history interesting visit tea room carrick roads
Much history surrounds this castle, built by Henry v111 and used to defend against invaders right through to the end of ww2. Nice restaurant and site entirely dog friendly except main part of restaurant but there was some indoor seating for dog owners
We visited this castle whilst on a cruise around the UK. It is more a fort than a castle. It has played a role in English history since Tudor times up until WW1 (if not beyond). It is set in a tranquil setting with great...More
Visited one very rainy Saturday afternoon. Rain spoiled it for us in so much as there is a lot of walking between things. It was difficult to see the areas which the guns covered as unfortunately over the year trees etc have grown up to...More
We spent a great day wandering through this site. The staff and tour guides were great and very approachable open to questions as they talked about the gun emplacements.
The food was good and reasonably priced with indoor and outdoor seating areas.

We visited the cafe and watched Jade, fondle, caress and stroke visitors' dogs ( three during our visit) in between serving and preparing food. This seemed most unhygienic. Otherwise an interesting place in a great location.
Spent a few days in Falmouth and typical we had some bad weather, but with the rain drizzling we decided to visit the castle and luckily the weather improved and the rain stopped so we were able to enjoy our visit. Most interesting was the...More
My partner and I visited in late May this year.
The weather started out very cold, and if you're driving to Pendennis, please know it is all a one way system and you can get lost driving here (like we did).
It brightened up luckily...More
What a gem this place is! My family are English Heritage members and we decided on a little whim to visit Cornwall one weekend for Tintagel. We did this and had a great day there but thought there must be more in the area...opening the...More

I think you could handle the walk around the grounds, watch the cannon being fired, go inside the museum and café, see the displays set up around the Fortress. It's more a fortress than a castle. Nothing pretty inside and lots and lots of narrow stone stairways. My husband went up to the top but I gave up halfway up. After two weeks of seeing castles, everything started to look the same. If you want to see a pretty castle, go to Maidenhead to Leeds Castle. You can even spend the night there. I have a review about it. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and the great thing about it is, if you can't walk far, there is a little train that will take you to the castle and back. You can also see most of the inside of the castle. I don't remember there being too many stairs. There's also a pretty moat around the castle. Would be beautiful in the Spring. We visited in October. It was still very pretty.
