There are over 200 acres to explore at Heligan from the Victorian Productive Gardens to the pioneering Wildlife Project.

The Productive Gardens are home to around 200 varieties of mostly heritage fruit, vegetable, salad and herb which are all use in the tea shop. The Pleasure Gardens were first laid out 200 years ago and today they are home to romantic features and a network of walks lined by a magnificent collection of historic plantings. The Jungle is abundant in exotic plants and trees including bamboo, banana plantations and giant rhubarb.

At Heligan there is also 80 acres of ancient woodland with fascinating sculptures nestled throughout such as The Giant's Head. Also at Heligan is Horsemoor Hide Interpretation Centre where visitors can learn about nature and wildlife through live and recorded footage captured at the estate.
