Booking a group visit to Trelissick

The garden at Trelissick is popular all year round and so we ask that you book in advance if you’re planning to visit as a group. When enquiring please specify if you intend to arrive by coach, as there is limited coach parking in the car park.

Please be aware that we are unable to accommodate group bookings at weekends, on public holidays or during local school holidays.

To book your group please call 01872 862090 or email

Benefits of booking a group visit

If you visit Trelissick as part of a group, you’ll be entitled to some or all of the following benefits:

  • Complimentary admission for a group leader on a pre-booked familiarisation visit following confirmation of your group booking
  • Complimentary admission for one group leader on day of visit
  • Discounted admission for groups of 15 people or more when paying in one transaction
  • Allocated arrival time
  • Free coach parking (as previously specified, this will need to be confirmed in advance)

Free familiarisation visits for group leaders

If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 249 1895 or email us at

Who is eligible for free entry?

Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.

Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.

Educational group visits

Trelissick is the perfect place for a self-led educational visit. If you would like to plan your visit, please contact us at Schools or education groups can benefit from an Education Group Access Pass, which gives the whole group free admission and parking at most of the places in our care for a year.

Accessibility at Trelissick

An access statement is available from the Trelissick website. Please note that visitors arriving by ferry will encounter steep inclines on the path from the jetty to the garden entrance. If wheelchair access is required it’s essential that this is booked in advance.

If a member of your party requires a mobility scooter for the course of your visit, this will also need to be requested prior to your arrival. Due to the nature of the paths neither wheelchairs or the mobility scooter are able to be taken to the ferry entrance and jetty.
