ne of the finest of the mighty fortresses built by Henry VIII to defend the country against invasion, Pendennis Castle remains one of Cornwall's greatest fortresses. With over 400 years of defending Britain’s coasts and a range of ways to learn on-site, we've got everything you need to help cover a wide range of cross-curricular topics.
