Join us this winter at the Heligan Night Garden and become immersed in an enchanting lantern experience, set amidst the atmospheric Lost Gardens.
Journey through the magical garden trail, exploring woodlands and gardens beautifully lit with installations and lanterns. Discover breath-taking displays of fauna and flora as we celebrate the characters of our community, all illuminated within Heligan’s much-loved and iconic locations.
We have extended the experience for 2022 to include additional dates alongside fresh installations and a new night time route, and are thrilled to once again be working with The Lantern Company. A leading UK outdoor arts organisation, they bring artists and communities together to create spectacular events.
The Lantern Company’s illuminated installations at Heligan holds up a nocturnal magnifying glass to the often-overlooked wonders and beauty of nature on our doorstep. From badgers to fungi, bees to butterflies, and a joyful family of cheeky Tamworth pigs, this illuminated seasonal trail creates a treasure-filled space for families and friends to discover these beautiful indigenous species.
Following an extended 1-mile one-way journey around our accessible Gardens, the Heligan team will direct you to discover nature in a celebration of the wildlife that make Heligan their home all year round. Explore at your own pace, stop to take in the smells, toast marshmallows by our stunning fire bowls, experience our glittering oak trees, and enjoy seasonal warming take away refreshments and meals amid a truly festive backdrop for your Winter’s evening.
