Gyllyngdune Gardens in Falmouth, is a beautiful public space with historic gardens & multipurpose centre.
Visitors are now able to enjoy the restored and replanted gardens including the lower quarry garden which is home to Gyllyngdune’s famous shell grotto. Admire the Victorian follies throughout the gardens, like the monolithic arch, shell seats and ‘chapel’ on the seafront.
Wander through the rose walk towards the upper gardens and you will come across our glasshouse, copper water feature and natural play area for younger visitors.
Enjoy lunch, or a coffee and cake in our well appointed new bistro and take in the beautiful vista across the upper lawns and newly opened sea views, or drop by in the evening and see the bandstand and veranda beautifully illuminated.
The gardens are a short distance from the seafront, town centre, the Maritime Museum, Ships & Castles, Gyllyngvase Beach and Pendennis Castle. Please follow the brown signs through town for the Princess Pavilion. We have new secure cycle racks at the entrance to the Pavilion for chaining up your bike, please ask us if you need to hire a bike lock.
Free parking is available on site. Further parking is available at the nearby Dell Car Park (next to the railway station) and in Gyllyngdune Car Park (behind Queen Mary Gardens) near the seafront.
Don’t forget to pick up and brochure to let you know of all of the up and coming events in the Pavilion and Gardens.
