Lost Gardens of Heligan
Nr St Ewe, PL26 6EN
The Lost Gardens of Heligan offer a magical day out for people of all ages. Originally created during a period from the mid-18th Century through to the beginning of the 20th Century and underwent major restoration in the 1990s. Following the restoration work, BBC Gardeners’ World dubbed Heligan ‘The Nation’s Favourite Garden’ following a vote from viewers.
The gardens play host to an extensive collection of rhododendrons and camellias, a number of lakes and a particularly popular ‘jungle’ area filled with sub-tropical tree ferns.
Some of the most talked-about features at The Lost Gardens of Heligan include the Mud Maid and the Giant’s Head, two stunning sculptures created from rocks and plants.
