The Lost Gardens of Heligan

If you love to be out in nature and enjoy discovering the beauty of every season, then The Lost Gardens of Heligan is a place of beauty you’ll quite simply adore. The gardens date from the 16th century and were lovingly restored from wilderness to become a must-visit for gardeners from all over the world. 

At the Lost Gardens there's a network of magical gardens, woodland walks and farmland brimming with interest and intrigue, covering over 200 acres.

Explore dappled woodland trails in the Giant's Head Play Area, adventure across their iconic Jungle Rope Bridge, and discover Heligan Play Meadow (the South West's largest outdoor play area) - where children and the young-at-heart alike can stay and play all day in nature.
