Superb subtropical garden, with special interest for families

Lose yourself in the three valleys of Glendurgan Garden - full of fun, natural beauty and amazing plants.

Discover giant rhubarb plants in the jungle-like lower valley and spiky arid plants basking in the sunny upper slopes.

Wander through the garden down to the beautiful hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River: a place to watch birds and boats, skim stones and build sand-castles.

Find a boat-seat, gigantic tulip-trees and ponds teeming with wildlife. Learn about the Fox family who created this 'small peace [sic] of heaven on earth.'

For garden lovers

Don't miss our mixture of exotic plants that fill the lower valley at Glendurgan. Enjoy them at their best throughout the summer.

For families

When Alfred and Sarah Fox began Glendurgan over 150 years ago they had the entertainment of their 12 children in mind. The maze, giant's stride swing and beach are waiting to be explored.
