An absolutely outstanding tour of the Half Moon Battery by Sergeant Steve made this a 5 star visit. It wasn't something I was planning on doing, but the nice young lady manning the Covid entrance queue suggested it and I thought why not. It would be easy to view a themed tour as something aimed at children; however there were only a couple in the tour group, and I think it would be correct to suggest Sergeant Steve had us all gripped throughout the whole tour. I was amazed when an hour has pasted - particularly given the visit was a wet and windy October day. I've never had such a tour at an English Heritage site before, but would thoroughly recommend it. Sergeant Steve was full of energy, enthusiasm and information. The rest of the site was very pleasant and well managed. The quick tour of the keep with views from the roofs as also well done.

We booked in to visit here on a wet Monday afternoon. Due to Covid not everything is open but the grounds are still worth a walk around and the views are amazing. If you go make sure you book the half moon battery tour as this is very fascinating and the guide was well informed and made it fun. Unfortunately as it was wet we were not allowed on the roof of the castle due to safety reasons but this did not stop us enjoying our time here. We recommend the moat walk too as this gives a view of the castle from all angles, its also worth a walk down to see Little Dennis.

I visited Pendennis castle in Falmouth on 31st October with my family. Booking in the name of Fox and Trestrail. The day was advertised as a spooky spectacular. As i wanted to avoid the trick and treat due to COVID i booked for the spooky spectacular thinking it would be a great way to do something spooky for halloween. I was very disappointed with the visit. Apart from 2 men doing some sort of horrible history on the lawn there were NO HALLOWEEN things at all. The castle was not decorated, no pumpkins in sight, no spooky lights, staff not dressed up, there was nothing. I feel mislead by the advertising of a spooky spectacular it was far from it. Paying about £30 for 3 adult non members to attend in addition to children we came away disappointed. Not a spooky spectacular at all-the only thing spooky was the lack of Halloween decorations. It is fine if the castle does not want to do a Halloween event but don't advertise one if your not doing it. we should be refunded for being mislead

Visited on Halloween. Some more information on where activities were taking place would have been good but we had a great time. There is lots to see, amazing views and a lot of history. Sergeant Steve in particular was great and brought the story to life. My niece was still talking about him the next day!

Lovely day at Pendennis Castle pre booked slot arrived check in was easy.It was Halloween week 2 children with us dressed up as a witch and vampire bride .They went round to competition 2 guys there were funny and friendly made everyone laugh interacted very well with all the children even our little 2 year old.They also did stories and acted them out for the children throughout the day.Couldnt get into cafe as it was full so can't comment about food .Lovely lady took us round keep name Sarah i think sorry if I got it wrong .some of family did the tour underground which they enjoyed.lovely views around and about.Would recommend Windjammer bar and cafe in the harbour for food was excellent.
