Our Gardens


Rhododendrons Penryn CampusThe campus grounds at both Penryn and Falmouth Campuses blend historic sub-tropical planting with newly created landscapes to create visually stunning gardens that are a haven for a diverse range of plant and animal species.

We maintain and enhance acres of grounds and gardens across Falmouth and Penryn campuses. Our Green Flag-winning grounds at Penryn Campus are open for all to enjoy. Visitors can take in the walled garden, herbaceous beds, sub-tropical planting, fruit producing orchard, Italian garden and terraces, the 18th Century lime avenue, parkland, the old drive with pinetum native woodlands and the historic rare Rhododendrons, cultivated on the site in the Victorian era. Meanwhile, at Falmouth Campus, the historic, sub-tropical planting blends seamlessly with Fox Rosehill Gardens. Throughout the year we work with students and staff on a variety of projects and are often looking for volunteers to help out - for instance tree planting and maintaining vegetable allotment areas.
