The diverse exhibits range from show gardens to floral art, utilising an array of different plants. Many respected experts and professionals are on hand to give talks and advice on how to create your ideal garden, and a number of trade stands ensure you can pick up those handy horticultural aids. You can explore the exhibits at your own pace.

Day 3 - Lost Gardens, Bodmin & Wenford Railway

This morning we visit the former Tremayne Estate, home to the extraordinary Lost Gardens of Heligan. The gardens were neglected in the aftermath of the First World War, but captured the public's imagination when they were lovingly restored to their former glory in the 1990s.

You are free to explore the site at your leisure. Strewn as they are with unusual features, exotic flora and unique and incredible arrangements, the Lost Gardens truly exude a magical and almost otherworldly ambience. We continue to Bodmin, where we join the famous Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway, for a nostalgic and scenic return journey in a heritage train.
