The Lost Gardens Of Heligan

Heligan is one of the most mysterious estates in England. Lost since WW1, the gardens were re-discovered in 1990 and lovingly brought back to life to become Europe’s largest garden restorations. Today, Heligan is a 200-acre paradise for garden lovers with winding paths leading to a sub-tropical journey through bamboo, tree ferns, giant rhubarb, bananas and so much more!

Trelissick Gardens 

Perfectly positioned in its own peninsula, Trelissick gardens have panoramic views across the Falmouth estuary. Explore the meandering paths through the gardens, leading you to exotic plants and herbaceous gardens bursting with colour. Up until 2001 the house was home to the Copeland family, dating back to 1750s this grand home is now open to the public.

Glendurgan Garden 

Big leaves, exotic flowers and a jungle like valley, this garden is not one to be missed. At Glendurgan there are three valleys to lose yourself in. In spring thousands of wildflowers carpet the sloping sides of the valley. Stroll through the gardens to the unspoilt hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River where you can watch the birds and bobbing boats. A much-loved part of the gardens is the laurel maze. Created in 1950, this living puzzle is at the heart of the garden creating a sense of adventure for all.

The Eden Project

Our list would not be complete without a mention of the iconic Eden Project. Opened in 2001 Eden claims the title of the World’s largest greenhouse (more commonly known as biomes). Step inside the biomes to find both a Tropical and Mediterranean region, each of which contain plants and trees representative of the areas. Love it or hate it but there is no denying that The Eden project is pretty spectacular.
