Trewidden Garden Visitor Information
Below you will find all the information you might need to know before visting Trewidden Garden.
We intend for this information to be as full and comprehensive as possible but if you do have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and a member of our staff will be happy to assist you.
Following the change in government guidance in relation to gardens opening to the public, Trewidden Garden will re-open from the 5th June to the 31st October 2020 for our normal opening hours 10:30am – 5:30pm with last entrance to the garden at 4:30pm, seven days a week.
A full risk assessment has been carried out and the necessary changes, including extra cleaning, additional hygiene measures, and provision for social distancing has been made to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors. We ask all visitors to adhere to the following new guidance when visiting:
- Observe social distancing throughout the garden, particularly in the tearoom where we ask that only one social bubble at a time step into the taped area in front of the till. There are two ‘pinch points’ in the garden paths that are sign posted and we ask people to sensibly navigate these, i.e. wait if people are already walking through it.
- Food and drinks may now be enjoyed in the tearoom, although please be aware we have less tables than normal and will be operating table service for customers.
- All purchases MUST be made by contactless card, we regret we cannot accept cash at present.
- Our toilets are now fully open, we ask that customers use these one at a time and use the disinfectant wipes after use.
- Please observe the new exit route behind the tearoom.
- We currently have a smaller number of staff serving than normal, we thank you for your patience if you have to queue/wait.
- Our Head Gardeners notes will be available to download here from the 5th June instead of the paper copies that we normally give to visitors.
We thank you for your co-operation with these new procedures and we are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone safely back to Trewidden Garden.

By Car: Signposted from the A30 Lands End Road, two miles West of Penzance at Buryas Bridge. Sat Nav. TR19 6AU
By Bus: There is a regular bus service from Penzance to Buryas Bridge Garage (approx. 30 mins from Penzance bus station). We recommend using the travel line website to show the available bus times (put Buryas Bridge opp Garage as your destination). It is then approximately a 10-15 minute walk up the scenic Front Drive from the bus stop to the garden entrance.
Yes dogs are very welcome, we do ask that they are kept on a lead at all times.
With our new Covid-19 procedures in place, we are unable to safely provide disabled parking close to the tearoom as we used to do. For those with impaired mobility, they can be dropped off at the start of the concrete path which is accessible for wheelchair users and runs directly to the tearoom entrance. The entrance from the tearoom to the garden garden entrance is gravelled and sloping, before levelling out to a pathway. About half of the pathways in the garden are accessible to electric wheelchairs. Manual wheelchairs are not advisable due to our pathways being topped with gravel. Carers are admitted free of charge and are welcome to inspect the (only) incline which leads directly from the garden entrance. (Sorry, we’re not able to provide any wheelchairs for loan). Watch our aerial video here to see the entrance and some of the paths in the garden.
We sell a small but lovely selection of gifts and cards, many from local producers.
