Queen Mary Gardens

Peaceful, relaxing gardens laid out in a formal style and framed by Monterey Pines. The gardens are located directly behind Gyllyngvase Beach and provide a perfect retreat from the energy and excitement of Falmouth’s award winning Blue Flag¬†beach. They were opened in 1912 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Mary,¬†the wife of George V.

The gardens are renowned for the proliferation of sub tropical species that thrive in Cornwall’s milder climate and these include Gunnera, Proteas, Agapanthus and Echium.
