The Lost Summer

22nd July – 3rd September

Daily 10am – 5pm

A return to outdoor play and summer adventure.

This summer The Lost Gardens of Heligan invite you to gather your friends and family for outdoor play and to build a den together. Explore den base camp, enjoy our camp fire, toast a marshmallow and chill out under the trees in a hammock. Try out our daily workshops and discover your wild side! 

Feeling adventurous?

Explore our play spaces located under the trees behind the Giants Head and on East Lawn.

Test your balancing skills, climb, crawl, leap, swing, jump and slide your way around our unique Heligan-made play spaces made from trees from our estate.

Join in the fun on East Lawn

Grab your friends and family and enjoy making a den together. 

What will your den look like?

Children, you are the designers and grown-ups, you are the helpers!

Relax a while in a hammock under the trees and join us by our campfire to toast your own marshmallow.
