Enjoy a spectacular visual tour of the private gardens at Heligan Manor in Cornwall, site of Europe’s largest garden restoration and the gardens voted England’s best by viewers of BBC “Gardener’s World.” Breathtaking full-color photographs, historic images, and engaging text capture the romance of this spectacular landscape which fell into decay after World War I and has now been returned to its former glory. Take a leisurely “stroll” through Heligan’s lush flower, vegetable, alpine, and Italian gardens; its vinery; its many wonderful buildings, including a woodworking barn and mill; bird sanctuary; and farm.
