We visited the Lost Garden’s on a sunny day which only enhanced their beauty. The layout of the gardens (and the map that is provided) are easy to navigate. The map identifies those areas that are more steep than others. We headed away from the...More

We’d heard a lot about Heligan before coming to Cornwall and had it as a must-visit. In reality it was a lot less than we expected, especially for the price. One thing that is clear is that the team there really care about the estate,...More

This place is absolutely beautiful, you must see just because of the sheer effort that has been put into it to restore it to its glory. The story behind the gardens is amazing, and apparently was turned into a TV documentary. The weather was not...More

Although there are no specific two for one offers or discount codes, if you’re visiting the Eden Project too, there’s the option of buying discounted joint tickets from their website. We hope to see you soon.
