Magical Castles in Cornwall

The Boutique Adventurer

The magical castles shown here will blow your mind with their grandeur, beauty, and history. Try and see them all, but if you can’t fit it all in, you just have a great excuse to head back to Cornwall.


St. Michael’s Mount

This iconic Cornwall castle is easily recognized for its grand and dramatic appearance. Situated on an island in Mount’s Bay, you can’t miss a visit to this architectural masterpiece.


Launceston Castle

The castle was also once the administrative building for the Earl of Cornwall and was an important location in assisting in keeping control of the surrounding areas.


Caerhays Castle and Gardens

This lavish castle and its gardens are exceptionally beautiful. This impressive building was built as a private residence and is not a royal castle with ancient history.


St Mawes Castle

St Mawes Castle is a well-preserved coastal fortress that was built between 1539 and 1545 by Henry VIII. It was built as part of a chain of forts to counter any attacks.


Pendennis Castle

This castle is in Falmouth, situated on the opposite headland to its twin, St Mawes Castle.


Cromwell’s Castle

This 17th-century castle is on the beautiful Tresco which is one of the Scilly Isles. The Scilly Isles is one of my favourite places in the United Kingdom – it is completely idyllic.
