The amazing Lost Gardens of Heligan

The Lost Gardens of Heligan have been owned by an aristocratic family since 1500!
The 19th century was the time of their greatest prosperity, with many gardeners working there. But when World War I broke out, many of the gardeners went to war, leaving the gardens to their fate.

Although, in 1990 this Sleeping Beauty was re-awakened to become Europe’s largest garden restoration project. Today Heligan’s 200 acres in Cornwall are a paradise for the explorer, wildlife, plant lover and garden romantic.
