10. Pendennis Castle
Pendennis Castle in Falmouth is not as famous as Tintagel, but a very impressive place in its own way. The well-preserved castle once used to be an artillery fort built by King Henry VIII. It was built to protect England against attacks from the Holy Roman Empire, Spain, and France. The castle grounds are immense, and there are a variety of buildings to explore – from the actual castle to a blockhouse and the barracks and much more. The castle lies in a beautiful area and you should take a whole day to visit Pendennis Castle and enjoy the atmosphere.
