Falmouth - The Lost Gardens of Heligan & Historic Charlestown (half day)

Depart Falmouth this morning for the one-hour journey to the historic port of Charlestown, an unspoilt 18th century village and harbour. The picturesque harbour, once a busy port, holds magnificent square rig ships and looks much the same as it did over two centuries ago.

Travelling on from Charlestown brings you to the magical Lost Gardens of Heligan. As if from a fairy-tale, the 57-acre gardens were lost for 70 years beneath a mass of ivy, brambles and fallen timber. In 1991 they were “rediscovered” and have been beautifully restored to incorporate rockeries, summerhouses and a crystal grotto. There are benches throughout the gardens, which allow you to enjoy the tranquil environment offered by the garden and birdlife. Your guided walk of the gardens will be conducted by one of the garden’s specialist guides – this is a tour for real garden lovers.
