We are National Trust member so this was a free day for us, but I think entry is £9 per adult. We enjoyed lunch at the entrance and also ice... More

Great variety of things to do here. This was our second time and still not boring. Starting with the 'Giant Stride' which is good for the older kids and then a lwalk down to the beach at Durgan overlooking the Helford River and then back up the path to the Maze in the middle. Great fun and don't forget the... More

This is a lovely place to visit on a dry day. Always visit when we are staying nearby. Nice walk through the gardens and down to Durgen beach which is very pretty. The children love the maze and Giants stride and always look forward to visiting again.

This is a larger garden compared to Trebah just next door. The maze is not to be missed. This is just the right outdoor activity on a clear summer's day.

These gardens are exceptional but you have to be fit to see it all.The gardens have a wonderful maize and lead down to to the sea at Durgan on the Helford river where there are lovely views.Brilliant but difficult if not strong on your feet.

We have been visiting Glendurgan for many years, since the children were tiny. Every time we return we seem to get something new out of it. Our teen daughter could not remember the maze so had a great time finding her way in & out while we watched from the opposite hillside. Although it was late autumn, very few leaves... More
