Overview
More
Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major attraction in West Cornwall. 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 contemporary artwork. The very favoured micro climate of kindly winter temperatures and shelter from the wind allow exotic and half - hardy plants to flourish. The planting schemes are appropriate to the varying individual habitats but carry a unifying theme of sculptural forms, textures and colours, complementing what nature has already provided. Dramatic landscape and planting provide the backdrop to contemplative but inspirational artworks. Internationally renowned artists such as James Turrell, David Nash, Richard Long and Tim Shaw have interacted with the setting to create site-specific permanent work, which harmonise with the landscape.

We, three kids, two parents and two oldies, first visited the restaurant with its menu catering to all customers; vegan, vegetarian, and other 'needs' I can not remember. All delicious and plentiful. Dogs welcome and staff very helpful. Then off to the gardens. What a...More

Spent a couple of hours here in the middle of the week. Enjoyed both the garden and the sculptures. Some of them are very interesting and the area is beautiful. It’s rather hilly so be sure to wear shoes that you can walk steep hills...More

Thank you for your review. It is easier to find us if coming from the east to stick to the A30 and take the 3rd exit from the Morrisons roundabout as you approach Penzance. Then follow the brown signs for Tremenheere. Details on our website.
