    As well as the brilliant array of plant life, the recent addition of an amphitheatre area offers family-friendly performances to delight visitors, while the backdrop of the tropical garden makes the productions even more magical. A variety of performances have been hosted here, from  Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night to Alice through the Looking Glass. 


    Away from the action on stage, visitors can follow the flow of the stream in the serene Water Garden area down into the tropical basin at the heart of the garden where it is possible to wander beneath giant rhubarb plants that offer a shady respite from the summer sun, ramble through Rhododendron Valley and make your way down to Mallard Pond with its Monet-inspired bridge.

    The garden even has its very own secluded beach where you’ll find the Boathouse Café and its stock of Cornish ice-cream. It was from this beach that 7,500 men from the 29th US Infantry Division embarked on 1 June 1944 during the D-Day Landings.
