Lost Gardens of Heligan

An enchanted place in Cornwall, surrounded by trees and magical natural statues. These gardens are considered among the most popular in the UK, and typical of the 19th century Gardenesque style. They were created by members of the Cornish Tremayne family from the mid-18th century to the early 20th century and are still part of the Heligan family estate. After an unfortunate period of neglect, they were restored in the 1990s, a magnificent undertaking which was the subject of numerous television programmes and popular books.

Trentham Estate

A royal palace and splendid gardens: Trentham Estate was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, written in 1086. At that time, it was a royal manor; before that an Augustinian priory originally occupied the site, which was followed by a convent. The gardens have won numerous awards. The contemporary revival of the famous Italian gardens was led by designer Tom Stuart-Smith. To the east of the Italian gardens are the Rivers of Grass and the adjacent floral labyrinth, both designed by the eminent Dutch planter Piet Oudolf.

Skudeneshavn

Skudeneshavn is the perfect encapsulation of the idea of a traditional Norwegian village. Here, lighthouses guide ships to Skudefjorden and across the North Sea. It is also home to large sailing ships and you will absolutely love the charm and old-fashioned flavour of this town. Founded on the incredible success of herring catches at the beginning of the 19th century, the town has grown at a surprising pace. Even today, almost 130 original wooden houses and waterfront piers have been preserved in ‘The Olde Town’, preserving the spirit of the time.
