Sightseeing - Many gardens are worth viewing and the subtropical climate supports the growth of many varieties of plants. The following are well worth a visit; Fox Rosehill, Queen Mary, Kimberley Park and Gyllyngdune are in Falmouth and those of Trelissick, Glendurgan and Trebah are all reached with ease. Pendennis Castle stands on the nearby headland of Pendennis Point, built by King Henry VIII between 1539-64 as a defence against the French. Today, the Castle, with its fine views across to the headlands of St Mawes and the Lizard Peninsula, stages battle re-enactments, jousting tournaments and concerts.
