Trelissick Gardens, Truro
Lovely in Spring with informal walks, and great views.
Trelissick Gardens are set in more than 400 acres of sweeping parkland with beautiful views of the Fal River and Estuary.
The first garden trail takes you through a large collection of hydrangeas, camellias and rhododendrons together with sub tropical plants.
A further path takes you over a stone bridge to another lovely area with more fine plants and Spring bulbs. Trelissick is also home to the National collection of azaras and photinias. In the dell there are tree ferns hostas and hellebores. There are also formal borders which give great colour in late summer. The small walled garden contains aromatic plants.
Facilities include refreshments, picnic areas and a shop. There is good disabled access. Dogs are allowed on lead through the park and a beautiful woodland walk of around 2.5 miles following the side of the Fal estuary. There is also a small beach ideal for picnics.
A point of interest for visitors from the United States, if you look over the Fal Estuary from the Garden you can see Turnaware Point the D Day embarkation point for the brave men of the 29th Infantry Division V Corps, US army.
