Overview
More
Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is a major attraction in West Cornwall. In a beautiful sheltered valley, the woods, stream and dramatic vistas provide a perfect setting for large-scale exotic and sub-tropical planting. Interwoven with this there is also an evolving programme of contemporary artwork. The very favoured micro climate of kindly winter temperatures and shelter from the wind allow exotic and half - hardy plants to flourish. The planting schemes are appropriate to the varying individual habitats but carry a unifying theme of sculptural forms, textures and colours, complementing what nature has already provided. Dramatic landscape and planting provide the backdrop to contemplative but inspirational artworks. Internationally renowned artists such as James Turrell, David Nash, Richard Long and Tim Shaw have interacted with the setting to create site-specific permanent work, which harmonise with the landscape.

Thank you Would rather Tremenheere were not viewed as a sculpture "park" and pleased its bottom of your list-smacks of a dreary trudge around featureless grounds on a tick box survey of dropped in artwork. The word "park" does not feature in our website nor...More

These gardens have developed beautifully over the years and will continue to do so. Ignore the dismissive reviews - go and be rewarded by impressive art and fauna within the spaces. Note to one of the reviewers that clothes has an 'e' in it.
