Heligan Night Garden

The Lost Garden of Heligan will come alive with a glistening trail of hand-crafted lanterns this winter as it welcomes back its magical Night Garden.

On various dates between Friday 17th November and Tuesday 2nd January, Heligan will open late as the mysterious and romantic world-famous gardens transform into an enchanting night-time wonderland. Visitors are invited to weave through the 1.4km trail inspired by the natural flora and fauna of the historic estate and discover beautifully crafted woodland creatures as they bathe the outdoor woods at this enchanting time of year. From fungi to badgers and dormice to foxes, the Night Garden is a twinkling celebration of the natural world. Guests are also invited to navigate the pathways by the warm glow of their own decorated lantern created in a Heligan Lantern Workshop, that run every half an hour from 4pm-6pm throughout the Heligan Night Garden.

As well as enjoying favourite installations, visitors will spot new illuminations that have been inspired by the gardens and created by The Lantern Company, including a celebration of their rare inhabitants.

Along the atmospheric route, there is also a chance to toast marshmallows over the fire pit and warm up with a selection of delicious winter warmers.

Entry to the Heligan Night Garden starts from £14 for adults and from £7.30 for children. Under-fives and carers go free. The Lantern Making Workshops are £6 per child (must be accompanied by an adult).
