A magnificent castle with a magnificent view,

What (St) Mawes could you want?

 

Nestled on a rocky outcrop at the end of the charming fishing town of St Mawes, lies the picturesque St Mawes Castle.

Overlooking the Fal estuary, directly opposite Pendennis Castle, it protected the estuary for over 400 years.

This summer English Heritage have introduced new exhibits which explore the castle’s earliest history under Henry VIII and, for the first time, reveals the story of the Cornishman who supervised the building and became its first captain, Thomas Treffry of Fowey.

St. Mawes Castle is a beautiful design, in a beautiful place, with a deadly purpose: it is easy to forget it was designed for artillery to sink the ships of England’s enemies. But its carved shields and Latin verse send a message through the centuries about the extension of Tudor power and the ambitions of a local man – Thomas Treffry of Fowey – to buy into it.

Treffry’s story is told as part of a complete refresh of the castle. A new model introduces St Mawes’ design and layout, audio tracks throughout the keep bring past Tudor characters to life, and interactive games introduce families to heraldic shields and the ornate decorations on the castle exterior.

Alongside the new interpretation, families can enjoy fun and games throughout the summer courtesy of the castle’s Hands on History Crew!Join the crew for have-a-go activities inspired by the castle's Tudor kitchens every day throughout the school holidays. With story-telling, object handling, and the chance to test your sword skills, there has never been a better time to discover one of Cornwall’s hidden historic gems!
