About the garden

Nestled in a secluded valley with gorgeous vistas overlooking St Michael’s Mount, Tremenheere Sculpture Garden showcases fascinating artworks by renowned artists such as James Turrell, in lush almost jungle-like surroundings.

Over the years, owner and curator Neil Armstrong has added a range of exotic shrubs and plants to this ancient woodland oasis. Visitors can bask in the majesty of ancient trees stretching back 600 years as well as sub-tropical plants from Australia, South America and South Africa. The 22-acre hilly terrain snakes around serene water lily studded ponds and woodland paths.

Exploring the garden is a humbling and inspiring experience and one of the most enjoyable things to do near Penzance for children of all ages.

Lovely place, just went for lunch. They are serving from a hut outside and there is plenty of room on the grass if you want a picnic. There are also tables to sit at. Lovely food.

Absolute hidden gem! We didn't have high expectations on the gardens given it was Easter and felt it would be too early, but they were vibrant and had an amazing array of succulents. The sculptures there were brilliant and had several quiet spots dedicated to reflection and well being. There was some great views across St Michaels Mount. There are also plenty of places to sit if you bring a picnic, otherwise there is a cafe (full meals with outdoor or indoor seating) there as well as a takeaway hut (coffees, cake, alcohol). Bring your walking shoes and there are plenty of stairs on some routes but there are routes to see the park that are both buggy and wheelchair friendly. Toilets are also set up for disabled access and baby change. Parking on site is free and there is also a succulent nursery there if you wanted to buy some of the great plants you've seen on the day. Would definitely go there again and was well worth the day out. We went with our 3 Yr old and it took us approx 3.5 hours at a very meandering pace with stops for lunch and a coffee at the end.

Amazing. The gardens around the cafe and gallery building. The fantastic food inside (if Covid allowed) and the picnic boxes for on the lawn. It was only after a couple of visits that we found we'd been missing the entire big area up the path (you have to pay to go into it, but well worth it) huge, area of further gardens, sculptures .... Dog (on a lead allowed) and so do the kids.

Always a pleasure to visit. I had a coffee with fruit scone with cream and jam. Lunch was being served at outside tables. Gardens are a pure joy. St. Michael's Mount in the distance. Art gallery and small nursery selling succulents. Well worth a visit.
