Enys is situated a few miles to the East of Penryn in Cornwall. Its beautiful gardens and woodlands are a haven of tranquility. Its ancient buildings have been largely abandoned since the mid-20th century, but are gradually awakening from their long slumber.

Days and times
Our season runs from 1st April to 30th September, during which we are open Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 2pm-5pm; Sundays 11am-5pm. There are also some special events, when times and admission prices may be different. Please see our Events page for the current programme.
In common with most other gardens in Cornwall during the covid pandemic, admission is only by advance online purchase of tickets; payment on arrival is not possible. To book tickets, please go to the calendar and select the date when you wish to visit. This will take you to the relevant page where you can learn more and buy tickets. Ticket sales only go live a few weeks before the day, so you may not be able to book all the dates you want immediately, but they will go live in good time! On non-event days outside our peak season in May, entrance prices are
Adults: £8, Seniors (65 and over): £6, Students with ID: £5, Children (ages 6-17): £2, Children (under 6): free,
Family (2 adults and up to 3 children): £18.
Your tickets are only valid for the day for which they were booked. As with other gardens in Cornwall, we cannot offer refunds of unused tickets. Please observe prevailing covid restrictions during your visit.
Please note: Gardeners’ World 2 for 1 offer is only valid from 1st June to 30th September.
Arrangements for Bluebell Festival 1st-9th May 2021
22nd April: Bluebells in Parc Lye 7%
There will be a limited number of advance tickets on sale online, booking as explained above. If you find that the advance tickets for the time you want are all sold, you are still welcome to come; please just register for the event and turn up with cash (the exact money really helps!) or card. Adult tickets £10, Senior £8, Family £22, other prices as for normal admission. The Bluebell Festival is an amazing spectacle, and is always very busy, so please help us and yourselves to get on site with minimal delay by having your tickets or cash ready by the time you reach the kiosk!
For covid safety and to prevent overcrowding, we will split each day of the Festival into morning and afternoon arrival. If you booked before we introduced this split, you can use your ticket at any time during the day.

Practical advice for your visit
Please be aware that walking shoes or sturdy boots are advisable if you want to make the most of your visit, for although we have footpaths that can be accessed by all, there are many over the site that require regular walking attire.
Enys Gardens is an old historic garden with old pathways which are not always ideal for wheelchair users. Many of the pathways are unmade and natural and during wet weather can be muddy and difficult to negotiate in a wheel chair. Wheelchair users are very welcome but some areas of the gardens may not be as accessible as others, especially the pond area which is very steep. There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet.
