Groups

We would love to welcome your group to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Please contact us to discuss your group’s needs and interests. We will do our very best to accommodate.

Enjoy a group day out at the largest garden restoration in Europe, home to a National Collection of camellias and rhododendrons and bursting with romance and intrigue around every pathway and corner. Whether you are looking for breathtaking surroundings, history, horticulture, wildlife or a unique day in the heart of the Cornish countryside, The Lost Gardens has it all.

Please be aware that there are over 200 acres for your group to explore and we therefore recommend a minimum of a half day visit to ensure that you have seen as much as possible. In our experience, groups who have only allowed an hour or two to visit have been left feeling disappointed at how much they didn’t get to see.
