Overview
More
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

Whilst in Penzance area you must visit these gardens they are fascinating and with beautiful views across Mounts Bay. They have a wonderful restaurant serving lots of goodies. Also available for private parties. Must go!!

Interesting garden with amazing views of St Michael's Mount. Have enjoyed the very tasty food in the cafe. Yum! The shop is good (if a little pricy). Interesting plants to buy and an art gallery in a great building.

We were totally bowled over by this garden. It's such a surprise with it's banana and palm trees, camera obscura, the peaceful and relaxing Skyspace, the Restless Temple that moves with the wind and the many other interesting sculptures and plants.
