Queen Mary Gardens

Queen Mary Gardens

Queen Mary Gardens offers a space of tranquility and exceptional scenery displaying rich flower beds, trees and a range of subtropical species. The gardens benefit from Cornwall’s milder south coast climate which allows rarer plants such as Agapanthus, Proteas and Echium to thrive.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome to accompany you in the garden which is named after the coronation of Queen Mary, the wife of George V. The gardens are free of charge for visitors and public parking is available only a short walk away, either next to the beach or at Grove Place.

The 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.
