These dramatic sculpture gardens are set in a beautiful sheltered valley full of exotic plants and contemporary art installations.
One of Cornwall’s newest and most original attractions only opened in 2012 and has given a new slant on the traditional garden. Over 20 acres of sub-tropical plants, woodland, ponds and streams fill this beautiful valley near Penzance and the paths are cleverly designed to follow the natural camber of the hillside.
The strongly structural planting scheme means that the gardens doesn't follow the traditional spring flourish so there is colour and vibrancy all year round. The evolving programme of contemporary art dotted around the gardens provide an alternative element.
