Description

Throughout the summer months here, the guns of history are fired. Literally blasts from the past as the sun shines and the canons roar. This is one Henry VII’s most highly regarded castles. And it has been a faithful and impressive sentinel here in Falmouth, warning against – and preventing – invasion for hundreds of years. It’s always fun for people of all ages to visit an old fortress. The state of the art displays here, and the interactive technologies certainly make the experiences exciting and enthralling. So is the exhibition - ‘Fortress Falmouth and the First World War’. But the actual features of the place resound powerfully as they are, unadorned and simple. The tunnels. The towers. The observation posts. The tales of how people throughout the ages have defended this section of the coast, ever since Tudor times, for centuries, through two World Wars and right up until today.
