Fowey - The Lost Gardens of Heligan (half day)

Travel by private motor-coach 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. They have been beautifully restored and incorporate rockeries, summerhouses and a crystal grotto.

You will be met by a specialist guide for the gardens who will introduce you to the remarkable history and delights of these impressive gardens. There are benches throughout the gardens, which will enable you to enjoy the tranquil environment offered by the garden and bird-life. Learn of the remarkable history of this garden – how it was first created and how it fell into disrepair and mystery, only to be de-discovered and restored to its former glory in recent years. Enjoy the variety of planting, from Victorian pleasure grounds, to vegetable gardens, a sub-tropical jungle and the 30 acre ‘Lost Valley’ that is now the focus of sustainable woodland management practices. These really are glorious gardens and voted ‘The Nation’s Favourite Garden’ by BBC’s Gardener’s World in 2002.
