Twenty five years ago, The Lost Gardens of Heligan were recovered from the brambles of time. Today, there are among the best loved and romantic gardens in the UK, appreciated as much for their mystery and for their beauty. They also constitute one of the largest garden restoration projects undertaken in Europe in recent years. Over 200 acres are now a paradise for those who love wildlife, plants, and exploring. Victorian Productive Gardens and pleasure grounds beckon along winding paths laid out over two centuries ago. The Jungle takes you on a sub-tropical journey through bamboo tunnels and under majestic fern trees, giant rhubarb and banana trees, while the estate reveals a lost world of traditional breeds, wildlife and ancient woodlands.
