Guided Tour of Half Moon Magazine
Join a member of staff on a tour of the Half Moon Magazine at Pendennis Castle. The magazine was built in 1894 to house the shells and cartridges used for the castle's 'disappearing guns'. The magazine can only be accessed on a guided tour, which includes an audio re-enactment of the work that took place within the magazine. There are some loud bangs and sudden darkness. A dark, uneven tunnel leads down to the magazine, which means this tour is not suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs, small children or visitors with limited physical ability.
