This was our second visit to The Lost Gardens of Heligan but our first with a 10 year old child. We all had a fantastic day.

Such a large space with so much history, it's like an adventure with art and nature it's amazing, it's so large we spent 6 hours there and couldn't see the entire space, would recommend to anyone, much better then Eden project and a lot cheaper!!

Very good day out. Make sure you leave plenty of time as the grounds are extensive. Enjoyed both the more formal Northern gardens as well as the wilder Southern areas. Ice cream was delicious

The most amazing gardens we have ever visited. Much has been achieved in the time it has been open. Good value for money and we preferred this several times over to the Eden Project. Cannot be overstated how beautiful and well maintained these gardens are. Will be back.

The history of the gardens and of restoration is very well presented throughout the garden and is fascinating. I last went about 8 years ago and loved to see the progress. Good value plants in shop: mine are still alive weeks later in North Bucks, despite the long journey.
