Summer holidays at Trerice

Enjoy a summer of play at Trerice and see how many challenges you can complete by taking part in the Trerice get set, go! trail. Between 26 July and 3 September collect a Get set, go! trail sheet from the welcome team at reception, 10.30am-4pm.

Create your own adventure as you make your way around the garden, taking part in the self-led activities along the way.

Collect some Get set, go! cards and stickers from the second-hand bookshop so you can continue your summer adventure throughout the holidays and at other National Trust properties nearby.
