Mobility / Wheelchair Support

Although not wheelchair friendly due to steep gradients and rough ground the gardens do have certain routes that could be taken by those with limited mobility. There are opportunities for a wheelchair to be used for certain parts of these routes, however there are inclines unsuitable for self propelled chairs or scooters.

Please ask at the ticket shed for guidance on which routes are suitable.

There are disabled parking bays and a drop off point next to Tremenheere Kitchen.

Tremenheere Kitchen, The nursery and Tremenheere Gallery are all fully accessible with smooth gravel on the outdoor areas and paths.

Assistance dogs are welcome (as are all dogs on a lead)

There are many benches around the gardens, most with beautiful views.

The accessible toilet is clean and large enough for a wheelchair, there are no hoists or changing facilities (There is a baby changing table).

Vision Impairment Support

Guide dogs are welcome (as are all dogs on lead)

The paths may be difficult to navigate with tree roots and uneven ground. There are some areas with steep drops or deep water. Please ask at the ticket shed for the most accessible route.

Hearing Impairment Support

The gardens are peaceful and there are many quiet areas for those who struggle with loud noises. The woodland walk has a fast flowing stream which can be noisy especially after wet weather.

The sculpture gardens are located close to the Penzance heliport so there are frequent helicopters overhead however it is at a distance that is not too overbearing.

Autism support

The sculpture gardens have many sheltered, quiet areas. Some sculptures are quite interactive and are able to be touched, one in particular stands out as an excellent sensory experience, Number 4 on the map (provided at the ticket shed).

There are steep drops and deep water in some areas, but these are well signposted. Those who struggle with loud noises may find the woodland walk difficult as there is a stream  which can be noisy, especially after wet weather.

The gardens offer so much, sensory experiences and secure open spaces and quiet, peaceful resting areas. The staff at the cafe and gallery are friendly and helpful.
