Have some fun with your family at Glendurgan this summer. As well as play features like the maze and Giant’s Stride rope swing, there's also a fantastic family trail to follow around the garden and brilliant beach games to play on Durgan beach too.

During the summer an amazing variety of wildlife can be seen at Glendurgan including lots of lovely butterflies. This summer holiday we have a fun trail where you and your family can learn all about the life of a butterfly.

The Kaleidoscope Trail runs from Thursday 27 July - Sunday 3 September and is suitable for all ages. Every child who takes part receives a butterfly themed prize at the end.

Durgan beach at the foot of the garden is the perfect place to skim stones, go rock pooling or play some fun beach games. Play equipment is available to borrow from the Fish Cellar in Durgan village. These activities are tide dependent so please check the tide times before visiting or call ahead for availability.
