Transport your group into a threatened 16th-century invasion and the tension of Second World War military defence as new sights, sounds and tours bring to life key moments in the castle’s history. Your groups can step into Tudor times and the scene of a threatened attack as the alarm bell rings and the castle readies to defend itself. Visitors can also explore the Battery Observation Post and the Half Moon Battery to discover the role played by Pendennis during the Second World War.

  • Explore inside the Tudor castle, taking in the shouts and calls as you listen to soldiers in the gun rooms counter a threat from enemy ships.
  • Look out to sea through restored and re-presented Second World War equipment and use audio handsets to listen in on imagined conversations.
  • Enjoy a Second World War tour of the Half Moon Battery led by one of our team and experience the magazine as the guns are readied to defend Falmouth harbour from enemies on the horizon.
  • Watch the noon day gun, which is fired daily from April until the end of October.
