A visit to the Lost Gardens of Heligan on a misty February day can be as rewarding as any other day in Spring or Summer! The Jungle, as it is called, is a captivating board-walk down a steep valley, filled with ponds, tree ferns, and giant rhubarb. With the mists of February, it is more Jurassic than Jungle!
For more information about this fascinating place, visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan website.
