This summer we invite you into The Lost Gardens to immerse yourself within our glorious garden flowers and wildflower meadows.

Breathe in sweet summer scents and tune into Heligan's summer insects, learn about the importance of our bees and butterflies and wonder at pollination happening right before your eyes.

Connect to your senses, as we invite you to explore the magnificent Heligan Estate using your Summer Buzz booklet, which highlights sensory abundant moments. Learn about nature and what you can do at home to welcome pollinating insects and why they’re important, plus enjoy creative crafts to keep you busy during the Summer holidays.

For the passionate pollinators, wander down to East Lawn, where you will find pollination activities for the whole family.

Dance to the beat of nature in Heligan’s first ever truly immersive BUGTASTIC SILENT DISCO. Flit, float, swoop and dance like a butterfly, or switch channels to wiggle, jiggle and shake like a bee!

Take aim like a bee and throw your pollen balls into the safety of your honeycomb.

Create your own pollinator wrist band choosing either a bee or a butterfly; peacock, red admiral, buff-bumble; or something entirely new.

Try your hand at pollination and buzz around like a bee or flit like a butterfly to see how many giant plants and flowers you can pollinate.

Explore insects in our macro photography mini exhibition. Can you tell what you see from just an eye, a wing or a stripe?

Test your sense of smell and see if you have what it takes to be a bee as you try to identify different flowers by their scent. For those who want to know more, you are invited to join our wildlife expert as she speaks about bumblebees and their importance to the world around us.

Whatever your passion there is something for all abilities at Heligan’s Summer Buzz. Just remember to grab a booklet and pack your best spots, dots and stripes ready for your perfect summer adventure.

All of our Summer Buzz activities are included in garden entry.
