Step inside the Secret Gardens of Cornwall for a private tour of the best horticultural destinations in the county.

Discover what grows well, when and where to visit, understand the challenges that the owners have faced, and have a taste of the world-class gardens to be found in this corner of England.

The 20 beautiful gardens included here celebrate the culture, beauty and diversity of the Cornish landscape – including unique micro-climates, rhododendrons and stunning scenery – through their sumptuous photography, fascinating stories and audiences with their owners.

From each garden we can learn about the creator’s style, their talent for exploiting the genius loci, and the specific challenges and rewards they have encountered.
