Tregothnan Estate are delighted to announce that the 2015 chosen charity is Cancer Research UK for their annual open weekend. Tickets for the event are limited to ensure the UK’s largest garden opening is a pleasurable experience.
Tregothnan is preparing to open its usually private gates to give an insight into the workings of the largest historic garden in Cornwall. Open for one weekend only on the 11 and 12 April 2015, visitors can experience Tregothnan’s unequalled diversity of trees, rare collections, sweeping vistas and peaceful secluded groves on the banks of the beautiful river Fal.
Get lost in ancient Camellias, mountainous Magnolias and the biggest Rhododendrons in the world with 40 foot crescendos of full flower. The sheer scale of the garden, over 100 acres, means that there will be plenty of peace.
Online ticket sales only. When you purchase your ticket online, all you need is your order confirmation code which we will email you immediately. There are no tickets to wait for – simply bring your printed confirmation slip.
Also available will be Cornish cream teas with Tregothnan tea and Kea plum jam, Salcombe Dairy ice creams, estate-reared meat cooked on a barbecue over Tregothnan charcoal, and delicious homemade lunches. Musical entertainment, children’s activities, games, demonstrations and a classic car display are also sure to keep visitors entertained throughout the weekend.
This year ‘kids go free’ (under 16) encouraging families to enjoy the adventure of Cornwall’s finest garden. All proceeds benefit Cancer Research UK. Open from 10am – 5pm, with the last entry to the garden at 4pm.
