A rather disappointing visit to Heligan. Few flowers, just a few camellias, and little to see in the vegetable garden. Service in the restaurant poor, no plates for the sweet, hot meal was cold by the time we were sat down due to incredibly slow check out. However there is plenty of scope for walking with well maintained paths and... More

Even in the depths of Winter (we visited in December) this place really struck a chord with me. We went on a joint ticket with the Eden Project as they are part of the same organisation and that might help the cost as I notice previous posts have pointed that out - but to keep it in context, similar attractions...

My partner and I came here for a weekend away and it was amazing. Filled with wonderful walks and lovely little surprises. Just wish we lived closer to be able to go again!!

We last visited Heligan around 10 years ago on a very wet day. On this visit, we were lucky enough to have a hot sunny day and arrived at 10am spending the whole day until 6pm. There is just so much to see with such a large estate. There are plenty of refreshment areas available with different types of food... More

We decided to give this a try, as we were looking for places to go for a walk and enjoy the good weather. We arrived and it looked lovely. We were a little put off on price, we hadn't checked before coming and we had made quiet the journey to get here so went for it. £13 odd each for... More

I visited at the beginning of January 2017. Even if I'd visited in the middle of summer (when everything is in bloom) I would have been left feeling I'd been fleeced. There are some features that can justifiable be cited as requiring building, maintenance and gardening costs. However, £13.50 for one adult is well beyond a reasonable charge for what... More
