What’s the attraction?
There’s 25 acres to explore with plants to discover from all over the globe. Wander along winding, wooded paths, find a quiet corner to sit or enjoy the panoramic sea views from the top of the garden.
What’s on offer for groups?
Pre-booked groups numbering 15+ people have the advantage of a reduced entry price (National Trust members free) and the option to book a guided tour or free introductory talk. If you choose the option of a guided tour there’s an additional cost of £3 per person and they usually last around 1½ hours.
Trengwainton has a renowned plant collection and fascinating history and we’ll do our best to emphasise the aspects that may be of most interest to your particular group.
We’ve welcome leaflets available in seven different languages, including English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
Looking for somewhere to eat?
The tea-room at Trengwainton is a private concession that serves light lunches between 12noon and 3pm. They have daily specials as well as sandwiches, jacket potatoes and various salads.
At other times they serve home-made cakes and afternoon teas.
The tea-room can seat 40 people indoors, with further seating for another 30 outside and we recommend that groups stagger their visit to avoid queues.
Looking for somewhere to shop?
Trengwainton’s shop has a range of jewellery and edible goodies from local suppliers, as well as books, hats, maps, bags and bottles to kit you out for exploring Cornwall’s amazing coast and countryside.
There’s also a plant sales area where you can buy with confidence, knowing that all plants on sale comply with the Trust’s peat-free policy.
How do you get here?
Look out for the brown tourist signs off the A30 Penzance-Land’s End road or the A3071 if coming from St Just. The roads are accessible to coaches and we’ve parking for a maximum of two coaches, so booking’s essential.
