Things to do at the Glendurgan Garden review
Glendurgan Garden is maintained by the National Trust located near Falmouth in Cornwall. It has been noted as a horticultural hotspot and is one of the best of Cornwall’s characteristic valley gardens.
The gardens are located where three valleys join into one and a blend of exotic and native plants thrive. There is also a large hedge maze which families will have a great time in trying to find the middle. There are paths with different gardens including a schoolroom that was used to educate the families children back in 1842. Further on from here sits the Giant’s stride, a giant maypole swing popular with families. Plus nature trails to explore and the gardens themselves have access to a secluded beach.
