The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Restored to their former glory after laying hidden beneath the weeds since the outbreak of World War 1 - One of Cornwall's finest!

200 acres of garden history, mystery and romance

Twenty-five years ago, Heligan’s historic gardens were unknown and unseen; lost under a tangle of weeds. It was only the chance discovery of a door in the ruins that led to the restoration of this once great estate. Today, the Lost Gardens have been put back where they belong: in pride of place among the finest gardens in Cornwall.
