Description:

Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major new attraction in West Cornwall...

Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major new attraction in West Cornwall which opened mid September 2012. In a beautiful sheltered valley, the woods, stream and dramatic vistas provide a perfect setting for large scale exotic and sub-tropical planting. Interwoven with this there is also an evolving programme of high quality contemporary art installations. Inspirational....contemplative... a joy to visit... Dramatic landscape and planting provide the backdrop to contemplative but inspirational artworks. Internationally renowned artists, such as James Turrell and David Nash have interacted with the garden to create site specific permanent work which harmonise with the setting. The land also provides a forum for ever changing temporary, or even ephemeral arts in all its forms. Ticket Prices: Standard Adult : £8.00 Concessions: £6.50 11 - 15 Years: £4.50 Under 11: Free Family Ticket (Two Adults and Two 11 - 15 Years): £20.00 Season Ticket: £30.00 Opening Times: Daily, 10am - 5pm

Nothing can quite prepare you for the delight of visiting this garden. A wonderful mixture of art and nature in harmony. The views alone are worth the effort. The new exhibition space is a fabulous asset which enhances the experience of one's visit. The restaurant serves delicious food with super customer service.

We visited during bluebell season, when the woods were carpeted with the flower. A spectacular experience!

I enjoyed my visit although the upward climb is steep but once you get to the top its a great view. I wasn't impressed with the sculptures to be honest apart from one or two but then again everyones taste in sculpture is different. Glad I went.

The unusual plants, trees and fabulous view across the sea to The Mount were far more enjoyable than the bizarrely simplistic sculptures - however loved the Minator.

4 of us had the best meal of the week here! Wonderful setting. We didn't visit the gardens this time, because of infirmity. The food is superb, the staff are so nice & the small nursery & the new gallery were an unexpected bonus. We love coming here.

Not only are the sculptures thought provoking they are in a wonderful valley garden tended by the monks of St Michaels' Mount years ago. I particularly liked 'Black Mound' by David Nash. I also noted David Long's name. The flowers, shrubs and most of all the succulents were very varied but sadly they were not named. Great cafe and plant... More

Thank you so much for your positive post The plants are not labelled as this would create quite a different atmosphere for what is a very naturalistic garden experience. However a detailed plant inventory-with location pointers- is available for those interested both on the website and in the ticket office. More

Not sure why we've not been here before, but we decided to visit this afternoon and really enjoyed ourselves. The garden is great - well laid out and some interesting sculptures. The children particularly enjoyed the camera obscura. The cafe is good too - we only had drinks and cakes, but they were good, and the staff were very helpful... More
