There is something for everyone to get involved with this half term as Glendurgan celebrates autumn for a two-week long period throughout the valley garden.

On their way into the garden, near Mawnan Smith on the Helford, visitors can collect a willow crown and decorate it with colourful fallen leaves collected from the garden floor.

Popular with all ages, there are crowns to fit all head sizes and shapes.

Visitors can also pose for a photo in a giant autumnal photo frame, created by local business Wedding Flowers in Cornwall, which has decorated it with seasonal fruits and leaves, providing the perfect surround for family photos or group shots with friends.

Young explorers can pick up a Glendurgan autumn colour wheel and be inspired by the autumn colour sweeping through the garden and see how many different colours they can spot.

Katie Reynolds, visitor experience officer, said: "We’re delighted to have a variety of seasonal activities which everybody can get involved with this autumn. There’s lots to celebrate at Glendurgan this time of year as beautiful golden tones sweep through the valley and we’d love to share this experience with all our visitors before we close for winter."

The wood burner will be lit in Glendurgan Tea House so visitors can warm up by the fire after taking part in the autumnal activities and enjoy a warming soup or coffee and slice of homemade cake.

All activities are free of charge – donations welcome – and began on Saturday, running until Sunday, November 3 – excluding Monday, October 21 and Monday, October 28, when Glendurgan closes for winter.

The garden reopens again in 2020 on Saturday, February 15.
