Set high upon the headland with panoramic views out to sea, Pendennis Castle is a spectacular location for memorable occasions. It was built in the 1540's on the orders of Henry VIII and has stood for five centuries protecting the British mainland from foreign invaders.

Today, the Castle no longer has to guard against possible raids by the Spanish Armada or fear that Napoleon's navy may launch an attack on this peaceful Cornish haven. The impressive Cornish landmark combines a unique history with contemporary styling and modern facilities, offering a memorable setting for weddings, smart drinks receptions, exclusive dinners, conferences and meetings.

Built in the 1540's, the Tudor Castle Keep lies at the heart of the grounds and is floodlit at night. Ceremonies and drinks receptions can be held in the Lower Gun Room, an atmospheric location where cannons once stood trained out to sea. With its unusual octagonal shape, light reflects off the solid granite walls and laces the warm wooden ceiling to stunning effect.
