Extraordinary Beauty of The Lost Gardens of Heligan

While many of us can’t travel internationally at the moment, we’re dreaming about our future vacations and waiting to jump on the moment we can finally book them. Our first stop? The gorgeous Lost Gardens of Heligan, which reside close to Mevagissey in Cornwall, UK.

This treasure in the United Kingdom is one of the most popular botanical gardens ever, and there’s a reason for that once you see these staggering shots of sculptures and plants. Heligan’s gardens were created by the Cornish Tremayne family, at the start of the mid-18th century. After being neglected post World War I, a restoration only happened in the 1990s, but it turned into Europe’s largest garden restoration project.

Activity stalled during WWI because most of those gardeners keeping the land alive were sent off to fight at war, and not many of them came back, so the gardens fell into a sad state before the restoration years later.
