Arrival and parking

There is free parking in the Trerice car park within 300 yards of the property entrance. The car park is sometimes unmanned, please proceed to reception if this is the case. There are mobility parking spaces at the end closest to the visitor entrance. Please note that the car park will be locked at 5pm daily.

The welcome team have resumed working from the reception building and, if you are a National Trust member, you will need to show your membership cards upon arrival. Please note there is no car park machine in the car park.

We have lockers available for bags or large bulky items to be stored in during your visit to the main house. This helps us minimise damage to the collection and look after the contents of Trerice. 

Staying safe at Trerice

To help keep everyone safe, please follow government guidance when you visit. And look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.

If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.

Exploring the garden

As spring progresses the garden is abuzz with activity as nature awakens. Wisteria, stocks, alliums, and apple trees are all in bloom. The blue and white border, in particular, is a highlight in May.
