St. Mawes Castle

By far the most prominent attraction in St Mawes, the castle is part of the fortifications of Falmouth, once used to protect the Cornish coast from foreign invaders, pirates and smugglers.

The castle was used heavily in the English Civil War, but was actually built much earlier, and was home to Henry VIII’s southern artillery provision. It’s the sister of Pendennis Castle on the other side of the Fal Estuary, and from each you can see the other. The grounds are lovely, perfect for a summer picnic, and the audio tour is the best way to learn about the castle and its history.
