Best Days Out Cornwall

When: 8 August 2023 - 24 August 2023

Knights’ Tournament at Pendennis Castle, Falmouth

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 21st June 2023

Tuesday 8 – Thursday 10 August 
Tuesday 22 – Thursday 24 August

Go back in time and get close to the action, as medieval knights compete in the ultimate test of strength and skill. Arrows will fly, swords will clash and the winner will be decided in the Grand Melee finale.

Set against the backdrop of a seaside castle, this family day out is one for the history books. Four rival knights don their armour and battle for glory, as spectators cheer their champion and merry music fills the air.

Immerse yourself in the encampment and meet characters from the past to hear all about day-to-day life. Young adventurers can test their aim with ‘have-a-go’ archery, or meet the castle Jester for some age-old mischief. Surround yourself with medieval pageantry, and hear the crowds ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ as falcons soar through the sky.

Don’t miss one of history’s most spectacular sporting contests.
