Major developments at the castle have revealed the full history of this superb fortress. 450 years of history can now be traced from its origins to its last military role as a secret Second World War base. A Discovery Centre packed with hands-on activities allows visitors of all ages to really get to grips with history. Also new is access to the restored underground Victorian and WWII defences complete with sounds and smells! The everyday life of the garrison at Pendennis is brought to life in the War Shelter, whilst the drama of Pendennis at War is also recreated. Besides this there is the 16th Century keep to explore with its lofty battlements and mighty Tudor gun-deck with the sights and sounds of battle. There is also the First World War Guardhouse, complete with cells.
