Eden project and Lost gardens of Heligan in one day?

I am planning a trip to St Austell and want to see the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. Does anyone know how long it takes to see each one - we don't want to rush too much but are keen to see as much of the local area as we can so we were wondering about seeing both on the same day or would that be too much?

Eden is very interesting and worth a visit, but the entrance fee is ridiculous. No wonder there visitor numbers are falling. We only go because locals get annual passes for a few pounds. A shame Heligan never do any deals for local people.

To take in the Eden project alone took me and my wife 7hours, of just meandering around the site, so to go to Heligan ,I think would be rushing it

Thanks. We have just returned from our trip and we did both on different days. We spent around seven hours at Eden and about 5 in Heligan. Both well worth a visit.

The entrance price is the reason we have not returned to the Eden Project, thought it was great though.(about 8 years ago)

Probably a bit late to reply to this,, but,, I just bought tickets for Eden Project from " www.365tickets.co.uk " for 40 per cent less than gate price,, Adult Gate price at Eden is £ 23.50 ,, 365 price is,, £ 14.10 ,, quite a saving, just have to print your own ticket,, Hoping this helps someone ,,
