“Heligan is so much more than just a garden—it is a place in the soul.”
Thirty years ago The Lost Gardens of Heligan were rediscovered from the brambles of time. Today, Heligan remains one of the most loved and romantic gardens in the UK, appreciated as much for their beauty and mystery, as for the ground-breaking restoration.
Over 200 acres await explorers, plant lovers and garden romantics. Victorian Productive Gardens and Pleasure Grounds beckon along winding paths laid out over two centuries ago. The Jungle takes you on a sub-tropical journey across our rope bridge, through bamboo tunnels and under majestic tree ferns whilst the Estate reveals a lost world of rare breed livestock, wildlife and ancient woodlands.
IN order to avoid very narrow and winding Cornish country lanes, follow the brown tourist signs from St Austell rather than following the instructions on your sat nav device!
The Lost Gardens of Heligan is open seven days a week, with the exception of Christmas Day. Visit their website for more information, and for full details of the many seasonal events run by the Heligan team.
The Lantern Company’s illuminated installations at Heligan holds up a nocturnal magnifying glass to the often overlooked wonders and beauty of the natural flora and fauna on our doorstep. From owls to hares, foxgloves, butterflies and robins, and a joyful burst of fuchsias, this illuminated seasonal trail creates a treasure-filled space for families and friends to discover these beautiful indigenous species.
The Heligan team are welcoming back Father Christmas and his team of Elves to The Lost Gardens. The Lost Gardens provide the most magical and perfect setting for a Christmas experience, especially for the annual visit to meet Father Christmas.
