Explore the wild and wonderful land of Heligan, Britain’s real life “secret garden” that was lost amongst weeds, rediscovered in 1990 and restored to its Victorian glory.

Highlights of the gardens:

  • Giant statues – the iconic statues of Heligan which appear to arch out of the ground itself
  • 100ft rope bridge – dare to cross the bridge, swaying above large-leafed ferns and tropical jungle plants
  • Europe’s only pineapple pit – see the pit used to grow pineapples for The Queen
  • The northern gardens – see the Flower Garden, Melon Yard and kitchen garden, where food for the on-site tearooms is grown
  • The wider estate – explore 200 acres of ancient pastures, woodland, ponds and lakes, the bluebells of the Lost Valley, and spot otters, kingfishers and Cornish cattle along the way
