The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey, Cornwall, UK
Created by members of the Cornish Tremayne family in the 18th century, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are home to everything from vegetable gardens to sub-tropical tree ferns and Europe's only remaining pineapple pit - a kind of greenhouse for pineapples. Two of the gardens' more famous residents are the Mud Maid (pictured) and the Giant's Head - super-sized sculptures made from rocks and plants. You'll never look at a garden gnome in the same way again.
