The Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, England

Located near near the village of Mevagissey in Cornwall, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, are one of one of Cornwall’s must-visit gardens.

Originally owned by the Tremayne family for over 400 years, the gardens fell into a state of neglect after the first World War when many of the gardeners sadly lost their lives.

It wasn’t until 1990 that the derelict gardens were discovered by Tim Smit (who went on to create Cornwall’s Eden Project) and John Willis, who was a descendant of the Tremayne family.
