Pleased note that our East Lawn adventure play area will be closed until Saturday 19th February as we allow the ground time to recover from some rather wet winter weather.

Christmas at The Lost Gardens…

This festive season at The Lost Gardens of Heligan will see the Gardens and Estate burst into joyful merriment with a collection of events set to bring everyone together, warm the cockles and celebrate good tidings. 

Christmas Lunches

With the days growing colder, why not warm chilly toes by the wood burner in the Heligan Kitchen and enjoy a traditional Christmas Lunch served with all the trimmings, the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit with family and friends. These festive feasts will be served from Monday 3rd December until Friday 21st December (except weekends).

Christmas Fair 

On Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December, Heligan welcomes back its annual Christmas Fair. Visitors are invited to browse over 70 stalls from some of the best local producers, artisans, creators and makers, including food and drink produce, crafts, jewellery, art and more.

This family friendly event is a must in your Christmas Calendar and gives you the opportunity to enjoy entry to the gardens together with a chance to find some truly unique gifts for that special person.  

Father Christmas at The Lost Gardens

Last but by no means least... This Christmas, The Lost Gardens are excited to be welcoming back ‘the man himself’, Father Christmas to their cosy Head Gardener’s Office. Here you and your family can meet Father Christmas by the fire and if they have been good, each child will receive a beautiful traditional gift!

Children of all ages will also have the chance to write and post their letters to Father Christmas between the 15th-24th December, as well as trying their hands at Heligan’s Christmas workshops and following the magical Christmas Trail as they explore The Lost Gardens.
