  • Gorgeous space with loads of benches and other places to relax. Very well kept with not just tropical plants but also animals such as squirrels and hedgehogs. It's very quiet and peaceful; a perfect place to relax, draw, read or stroll about in.
  • A hidden and stunning gem in all seasons: in spring, the wonderful collection of Rhododendron, Camellias and Magnolias are in full bloom - lookout for the rare lime Magnolia. In the summer, the lush green vegetation and large palm fronds offer the perfect shade for the bandstand performances. Winter comes late to Penzance and the garden maintains its deep greens - always a tonic and respite from winter.
