The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Once lost to the brambles of time, The Lost Gardens of Heligan have been rediscovered and lovingly restored to become one of the most loved gardens in the UK.

200 acres of adventure have been curated to let little legs and old minds run free. Explore dappled woodland trails in the Giant's Head Play Area, adventure across our iconic Jungle Rope Bridge, and discover Heligan Play Meadow (the South West's largest outdoor play area) - where you’re invited to stay and play in nature all day.

Discover over 300 varieties of heritage fruit, vegetables, and herbs, meet native rare breed animals and meander through a magical estate unlike any other.
