5. Lost Gardens of Heligan

Heligan, seat of the Tremayne family for more than 400 years, is one of the most mysterious and romantic estates in England. A genuine secret garden, it was lost for decades; its history shadowed by overgrowth. It has now been fully restored and is a great place for a family day out of exploring.

This incredibly pretty little tidal island in Mount’s Bay can now be reached at all times by a man-made granite causeway. One of the prettiest and most unique photos in the UK.
