Get in touch

Within the castle walls there are three flexible areas to choose from to best suit your event. Whether you are looking for spacious banqueting facilities or something more atmospheric for a drinks reception, Pendennis Castle has perfect spaces for every occasion.

Entrance into the castle keep

Lower Gun Room

Crossing a stone bridge, your guests enter the castle keep through a wonderful arched doorway with a heavy wooden door and portcullis, topped off by the Tudor royal coat of arms.

Inside, the unusual octagonal shape of the Lower Gun Room with its thick granite walls and warm wooden flooring, provides an enchanting setting for drinks and canapés. In fine weather, the grassy walled 'chemise' which encircles the keep provides an alternative or additonal area.

The artillery barracks

Royal Artillery Barracks

Just a short walk beyond the Tudor keep stands the Royal Artillery Barracks, built in 1901 to house the Royal Garrison Artillery. It is now converted into a smart self-contained suite, with its own private reception area, where you can register your guests.

It contains three wheelchair accessible rooms, each benefiting from natural daylight.

The Kiligrew Room

The Killigrew Room

The Killigrew Room is the largest of the three and is especially suited to dining or for daytime events. The Melvill and Arundell rooms are great as breakout and/or refreshment rooms. For dinners, they all work equally well as bar and dancing/chill out areas.

marquee and fireworks

Marquees

Within the grounds, a large lawned area provides ample room for marquee events on a grand scale, set against the spectacular backdrop of the castle, which is floodlit at night.
