The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Local nameThe Lost Gardens of Heligan
LocationEngland, UK

The Lost Gardens of Heligan is a botanical garden located near Mevagissey in Cornwall, UK. The gardens are considered to be amongst the most popular in the UK. The gardens are typical of the 19th century Gardenesque style with areas of different character and in different design styles.

The gardens were created by members of the Cornish Tremayne family from the mid-18th century to the beginning of the 20th century, and still form part of the family's Heligan estate. The gardens were neglected after the First World War and restored only in the 1990s, a restoration that was the subject of several popular television programmes and books.
