The Lost Gardens of Heligan

I don’t know about you, but I find it pretty hard to resist any spot called a ‘lost garden.’ That’s why I’m pleased to bring you the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

These magnificent gardens of this mysterious English estate were forgotten and, as the site says, ‘lost to the brambles of time’ at the outbreak of WWI.

They were rediscovered in 1990 and became Europe’s largest garden restoration project.
