15 February — 23 March 2011

Memorable night in store for lucky guests at Pendennis Castle, Falmouth.

The first sleepover is on Wednesday, February 15. The second sleepover is on Friday, March 23.

20 lucky guests will have the most memorable night’s sleep of their life at Pendennis Castle this 15th February as English Heritage opens its doors overnight for its first ever Castle Sleepover for families. 

Steeped in over 500 years of history and well-known for its numerous ghoulish residents, Pendennis Castle promises a night like no other as visitors at the exclusive event get to bed down in the haunted castle Keep.
 
The night will begin at 8pm when visitors will be treated to a special twilight tour, taking in Half Moon Battery, the Tudor Kitchen, the Keep and Guard House. 

A warming supper will be served in the castle tea room, followed by storytelling in the Keep where guests will cosy-up by the fire and hear tales of some of the spooky goings-on experienced by English Heritage staff. Visitors must book in advance to attend this event and be one of the first families to spend a night in the Keep.
 
Nikki White, Visitor Operations Manager for Pendennis Castle, said: 'We’re all really excited about the launch of castle sleepovers.  Our event is one of only two venues being held by English Heritage this year and we’re thrilled that Pendennis Castle has been chosen to host this.
 
'Up until now, the only people who have been able to tour the castle grounds after hours have been those staying in our holiday cottage. Now guests will not only get an exclusive tour but they’ll also get to sleep in a haunted castle!'
 
Visitor numbers are limited for this event, children must be eight years of age or over only,  A second family sleepover will be held on 23rd March.
