Exhilarating walk past Falmouth's famous shipyard, up to and around Pendennis Point, taking in the famous Pendennis Castle. Pendennis Point & Castle has a wonderfully unique environment with almost 360 degree coastal panorama. This walk is ideal for those with an interest in Poldark, Rosamunde Pilcher, castles, nature and those who would like to experience rugged Cornwall, rather than viewing from a coach. Stroll the sunlit cliffs surrounding Pendennis Point with our experienced guide. Pendennis Point and castle has played a pivotal role in defending the English coast since Henry VIII right up until World War 2. Learn how this area was used to defend against invasion, see how people lived at the castle & enjoy the wonderful sea air. Experience all this, while taking in the iconic scenery that is the Cornish coast.

There's something for everyone on this tour. Whether you like nature, coastline, castles, military history or are just interested in the beauty of Cornwall, this tour is for you, because the real star of this tour is the phenomenal views over the river Fal and the English Channel.
