ABOUT THE VENUE:
This is one place that almost needs no introduction:
It is a beautiful and magical place, yet you sense an indefinable atmosphere, as though some long ago tragedy is about to be re-enacted before you and that may well be the case. The Pengersicks were amongst the most notorious families in the county and their exploits have given rise to the numerous legends associated with the name.
Believed to have been originally built in about 1500 using stone work from the previous Pengersick Manor; Pengersick Castle has a great deal of fascinating history, including death, violence, tragedy, smuggling, robbery, murder, intrigue and black magic.
A tudor building, with turreted roof, Gun room, Spiral Staircase, atmospheric beamed rooms and even a drop-slot for pouring boiling oil onto approaching attackers, the castle is a unique and awe-inspiring proposition straight out of history.
