Christmas is always a magical time for The Lost Gardens of Heligan and this festive season brings with it the attraction's first Christmas Fair, on Saturday and Sunday, December 9 and 10, from 10am to 4pm.

This festive event will give visitors the perfect opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit and soak up the stunning surroundings as well as finding some very special gifts.

Heligan’s ethos for showcasing local businesses will be felt strongly during this time as it invites over 70 local producers, artisans, creators and makers to come and trade under a canopy of festive joy, with marquees in the coach park, plant sales, picnic and ticketing areas.

Visitors are invited to browse the traders' wares to find something just right for that special person, with plenty on offer including food and drink, crafts, jewellery, art and more.

A warm welcome awaits Christmas Fair visitors in the Heligan Kitchen where they can find delicious seasonal treats from the Heligan Bakery, enjoy a mulled wine and soak up the atmosphere.

The award-winning Lobbs Farm Shop is also open for visitors to pick up some of the best food from the countryside and a turkey ready for the big day.

The Heligan Christmas Fair is free to annual pass members, costs £1 for local pass holders and £2 for everyone else – including garden entry.
