For an exclusive view into life at the Lost Gardens, take a look at our videos of wildlife, events and activities captured around the gardens and estate.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Heligan is one of the most mysterious estates in England. Lost to the brambles of time since the outbreak of WW1, this Sleeping Beauty was re-awakened in 1990 to become Europe’s largest garden restoration project. Today Heligan’s 200 acres are a paradise for the explorer, wildlife, plant lover and garden romantic.
Soil To Plate
The Lost Gardens of Heligan, home to the Finest Productive Garden in Britain has teamed up with luxury British retreat, The Idle Rocks in St Mawes to celebrate Great Cornish food. This collaboration will see the best horticultural practises and heritage produce being showcased by a top chef, right in the heart of Cornwall.
