We would love to welcome your group to The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Please contact us to discuss your group’s needs and interests. We will do our very best to accommodate.
Enjoy a group day out at the largest garden restoration in Europe, home to a National Collection of camellias and rhododendrons and bursting with romance and intrigue around every pathway and corner. Whether you are looking for breathtaking surroundings, history, horticulture, wildlife or a unique day in the heart of the Cornish countryside, The Lost Gardens has it all.
Please be aware that there are over 200 acres for your group to explore and we therefore recommend a minimum of a half day visit to ensure that you have seen as much as possible. In our experience, groups who have only allowed an hour or two to visit have been left feeling disappointed at how much they didn’t get to see.

Guided Garden Tours
If you would like to discover even more on your visit then we can arrange a guided garden tour from one of our Heligan Tour Guides.
Group tours take the form of a leisurely stroll around the main features of the Northern Gardens.
During the tour, your group will learn about the history of the Heligan estate, the magnificent success story of its restoration, and about how the project continues to progress today.
Guided tours are suitable for visitors of all abilities. Should any members of a group have walking difficulties, we can supply wheelchairs on a first-come, first-served basis.
We also have German-speaking tour guides. Please contact us if you would like to discuss specific requirements.
These tours last around one hour.
If your group have more specific requirements about an area of the gardens or the history of Heligan, please let us know and we will try to make sure the tour accommodates your needs and interests.
Please note that if you would like to book a guided tour, we do ask for at least one month’s notice.
Thank you in advance.
