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.

Visited here on recommendation of a friend. What a find!! Fabulous woodland walk and a superb view of St Michael's Mount from the top. The sculptures are great too, but, to my mind, a little incidental to the fantastic flora and fauna of the gardens....More

Okay place to wander around on a sunny day. Lovely view of St Michael’s Mount. There are not nearly enough sculptures in this park. The ones in the entrance area (free of charge area) are the most spectacular. Paid £8 to enter and on reflection,...More

We popped in while on a short walk to Penzance, I’m glad we did. A great little find, very friendly staff, lovely breakfasts. The kids thought it was a great garden to explore with lots of different levels to keep you guessing.
