The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Pentewan, St.Austell, Cornwall, PL26 6EN
Explore Victorian Productive Gardens and Pleasure Grounds along winding paths laid out over two centuries ago. Journey across the forgotten world beneath the historic rhododendron boughs of Sikkim, beside Maori-carved tree ferns in New Zealand, to explore our Italian Garden and Alpine inspired Ravine.
In our Jungle experience, intimate pathways edged with sub-tropical plantings have been created through the valley and its watercourses, and a rope bridge now extends across it all, offering a whole new perspective. This exuberant garden hosts a riot of luxuriant foliage, bamboo tunnels, and gigantic rhubarb and bananas, drawing the imagination on a journey far from our temperate shores.
Heligan is so much more than a garden restored; its own special atmosphere encourages contemplation and inspiration, satisfying the broadest range of horticultural and wildlife interests. Today, the 200 acres of mysterious gardens and estate offer quite simply, the best natural playground ever and is dog friendly. Throughout the year Heligan host several events from touring theatre productions to themed seasonal events. Find out more.
