The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Lost to the brambles of time since WW1, the mysterious gardens and estate at Heligan have been lovingly restored to their former glory over the past 25 years and now take pride of place among the finest gardens in Cornwall. Britain’s real life ‘secret garden’ is the perfect natural playground for all the family and has just been awarded ‘best attraction in the UK’.
Wild flowers and exotic plants abound in the sheltered valleys of Glendurgan, which lead down to the water of the Helford River. The garden is full of fun, informal plantings, with beautiful blooms in all seasons and a range of specimens that changes as you walk from the sunny upper slope down to the subtropical lower valley.
