Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major new attraction near Penzance in Cornwall. A beautiful sheltered valley in west Cornwall, surrounded by woods, streams and dramatic vista, provides the perfect setting for this 22-acre exotic and sub-tropical garden. The dramatic gardens provide the backdrop to contemplative and inspiring art. International renowned artists such as James Turrell RA and David Nash RA have interacted with the garden to create site-specific permanent works, all harmonising with their garden setting
Emma said, 'My family and I love going to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, infact we visit so often we are almost part of the furniture. We mainly come to drink and eat at the very yummy café and restaurant with it’s gorgeous view of St Michael’s Mount and to wander around the small garden nursery, its galleries and craft shop. Taking a stroll around the Sculpture Gardens is highly recommend and you will not be disappointed. They are truly magical and the views from the very top of gardens overlooking Mounts Bay and The Lizard Peninsula are breathtaking.
The gardens are great value for money and free for under 11’s. Even if you don’t want to visit the gardens it is worth going to the café/restaurant just for the food and drink! The restaurant is open each day 10am until 4pm, serving food until 3pm, and opens in the evenings on Friday and Saturday nights. The gardens are open daily 10am until 5pm.
Check the website for exhibitions, plat fairs, and other events. Tremeneheere is also partnered with Silent Space; a not-for-profit project taking place in a growing number of UK gardens that open to the public. For a few hours at a time, each garden reserves an area where visitors have the opportunity to switch off their devices and to enjoy the restorative benefits of being silent in a green place without distraction.'
