Shape up before you ship out and be put through your paces at Pendennis Castle this half term. Running from February 12 to 16 , Train the Troops promises high-energy, hands-on fun for young time-travellers.

Step back to the time of the Second World War and join the castle’s Drill Sergeant to be put through your paces in the castle obstacle course. Crawl through tunnels, walk the plank and see if you have what it takes to defend a castle in this lively activity the whole family can compete in. Sign up to the training camp, try your hand at craft activities, and enjoy a well-earned treat in the castle café.

With glorious views, fun activities, and an impressive castle to explore – this is just the thing to shake off the winter blues this half term.

Train the Troops runs from 10.30-3.30pm each day. The event is included in the admission price to the castle.
