The Lost Gardens of Heligan -- Seeing Heligan Gardens is like traveling back in time to Victoria's day. Europe's largest garden restoration project sprawls over 32 hectares (80 acres) of pure enchantment, with award-winning gardens. Near the fishing village of Mevagissey, these gardens "slept" for nearly 7 decades before they were rediscovered and restored.

In summer, the gardens are open from 10am to 6pm (they close at 5pm off-season). Admission is £8.50 for adults, £7.50 for seniors, £5 for ages 5 to 16, free for 4 and younger. A family ticket sells for £24. For more information, call tel. 01726/845100 or check out
