  • Great little Castle well maintained, lovely little shop , not far to walk to from the ferry . Fantastic views over the bay , little windy today well worth a visit  more »
  • Built by Henry 8th, this castle mirrors Pendennis Castle across the water. A trip through time to explore the castle and outside grounds, far more to see than initially expected.  more »

  • St Mawes artillery Castle. As you approach by road it looks almost too small. But on entering it opens to a wonderful example of clever design. Circle upon circle of defence and attack. Great views. Free audio. Fun for kids.
  • Stunning castle, great location, do many similarities with Pendeen castle across the river. A fantastic day out to visit both, using the foot ferry as a way to navigate between the two.
  • Simply an incredible castle. Also very nice location and views
  • Not the biggest castle but certainly worth a look. Very interesting and good views.
  • Lots of steps, but loads of levels and views are lovely
