Tregothnan will open its gates to the public for the Largest Garden Open Weekend in the UK in support of iSightCornwall.

The charity believes this could be the world's largest garden opening for charity and the Guinness Book of Records have been invited to attend this weekend.

Tregothnan is inviting all ages to take a step into another world and explore the exciting and vast gardens which are almost 700 years old.

It is home to Cornwall’s largest botanical garden with more than 100 acres of wonders to explore.

The unique microclimate means that the garden is full of incredible scents, dramatic colours and sounds. Supporting iSightCornwall, Tregothnan will celebrate visually impaired people being independent and enjoy being part of the worlds largest garden opening.

iSightCornwall is Cornwall’s oldest charity and would like to help more of the 22,000 people with visual impairments in the county. This year Tregothnan aims to raise tens of thousands of pounds to help iSightCornwall support visually impaired people in Cornwall.

To enhance the garden experience, volunteers will explain the special characteristics of the garden and what makes the environment so special.

Visitors will be able to experience Tregothnan at their own pace, stopping to admire the hundreds of bold plants and shrubs that have grown due to the subtropical climates.

Allow your little ones to run through the biggest Camellia maze in the world, take in the breath-taking views over the spectacular Himalayan Valley and indulge in some delicious Tregothnan treats while you learn about the incredible history of the Tregothnan and Britain’s first tea plantations.

It is £10 for adults and children aged 16 and under go free. Gates are open from 10am-5pm, with the last entry to the garden at 4pm. Dogs on leads welcome.
