With more than 200-acres to explore, you really can lose yourself for a day at The Lost Gardens of Heligan near St Austell. The 22-acre ‘jungle’ hosts some of the most lush vegetation in the country in the steep-sided valley garden, including the largest collection of tree ferns in Europe, thickets of bamboo and a banana plantation. The Lost Valley is the hotspot of this historical garden, its ancient woodlands, water meadows and lakes dating back to a medieval past as a working valley.
Make sure you take the kids to experience the vast beauty of this family friendly garden that is guaranteed to keep small and curious minds captivated. Meander along the boardwalk through the jungle valley and take the children on a horticultural journey far from our temperate shores.
