Family fun at Glendurgan
Golden hues and colourful fruits mark the changing season at Glendurgan.
The end of summer is still lingering but the colours are already changing with the prospect of autumn throughout Glendurgan. There are bright red seed pods to be spotted on the giant magnolias and the early fruit appearing on the Cornus kousa (aka dogwood tree) announce the shift from summer to autumn.
What's on during October half term?
Saturday 23 - Sunday 31 October (excluding Monday 25 October)
Let the changing season be your crowning glory during the October half term by decorating a willow crown with Glendurgan’s fallen autumnal leaves. Simply collect a willow crown at the entrance and let imaginations run wild to see who can assemble the most impressive creation. A popular activity with both adults and children!
We’ll also have an autumn themed flower frame set up near the entrance for a photo opportunity with your friends and family and all your crowns.
During half term at Glendurgan’s orchard, near the School Room, visitors are welcome to collect any of the apples collected into baskets or already dropped on the floor. We ask that visitors please don’t pick apples directly as the trees are still young & we need to protect them from damage as much as possible.
Glendurgan closes for winter from Monday 1 November 2021 and reopens for half term on Saturday 19 February 2022.
