Lost Gardens of Heligan

Pentewan St Austell PL26 6EN

The Tremayne family developed and tended these magnificent gardens for more than two centuries, before they fell into disrepair at the outbreak of the First World War. Re-discovered in the 1990s, the gardens have been painstakingly restored to their former glory. See the fantastic Productive Garden, with over 200 varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs, the subtropical jungle and the Victorian Pleasure Grounds. There’s plenty of space for exploring the ancient woodland and lakes, and children will love coming across the natural sculptures on the woodland walk. Afterwards, enjoy a cream tea in the teashop and take home some plants of your own from the plant centre.
