Heligan will attend the Awards Ceremony held on Monday 11 May 2015 at the Sage, Gateshead, where the gardens will find out which award they will receive. As a finalist they are guaranteed to receive either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended Award.
The Lost Gardens is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary since its rediscovery. George Elworthy, Managing Director, Lost Gardens of Heligan, said: 'It is very humbling that a garden open for 25 years, is considered one of the best attractions not just in South West, but the whole of England.
"It really pays credit to the fantastic work the team here have done, since the gardens were first rediscovered by Tim Smit, John Nelson and John Willis in 1990'.
James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland said: "I'd like to congratulate all the finalists who now represent the top five in their category in England and wish them all the very best of luck on Awards night at the Sage Centre in Gateshead."
