An excellent day out in the ever-changing gardens. An interesting history and loads to see. The facilities were great with loads of places to sit along the way.
A must if you are in the area and good value for money.

We visited the gardens on our trip to Cornwall in April 2009 and we weren't disappointed.
Even my husband enjoyed our day at Heligan, and he has never even shown the slightest interest in even the local garden centre!
It did help that the weather was beautiful on the day we choose to go along.
We spent just over 3 hours at Heligan and felt that the entrance fee was justfied. The products in the shop were very reasonably priced to.

If you like gardens, then this is the one you have to visit and it's worth travelling for. The jungle garden is the most impressive, but in spring the rhododendrons in the upper garden are quite breathtaking.
