THE LOST GARDENS OF HELLIGAN
THE LOST GARDENS OF HELLIGAN, PENTEWAN
The Old Parsonage is a short distance to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, just under 3 miles by road and 2 miles on foot along a peaceful footpath through undulating countryside. For those without a car or wanting to save their legs for the 200 acres of gardens and trails there is a local bus and taxis. Heligan has large free car parks situated next to the entrance.
We work in partnership with the Lost Gardens of Heligan and sell discounted tickets, our tickets being cheaper than the combined Heligan & Eden Project ticket.
For a real-life ‘Secret Garden’ experience head to the Lost Gardens of Heligan. They were only discovered 25 years ago on a grand estate, which now amasses to 200 acres of cultivated and farmed land, planted plots for pleasure and Cornwall’s only outdoor jungle garden. It’s here where visitors can duck and dive under giant rhubarb, banana plantations and avenues of palms before passing ponds on a raised boardwalk. The sub-tropical environment also contains a 100-foot-high Burmese rope bridge, which is not for the acrophobic. Keep an eye out for the Giant’s Head, Mud Maid and Grey Lady on the Woodland Walk before stopping off at the Heligan Kitchen and Bakery.
