We have a lifetime membership here and it is one of the best investments we ever made.Over twenty years ago we were invited to invest in heligan if we believed it had a future.It is the most magical place with an amazing story to tell.It's gardens are unmatched in both the range it offers from her ladyships garden to the jungle area and the Italian garden and so much more. A paradise where you can watch the wildlife thrive and see creatures in their natural habitat due to the methods used that recreate traditional gardening without pesticides.
I have only one slightly negative thing to say and that relates to recent changes in the cafe area. The previous layout was fine but the new one causes great confusion and a huge bottle neck if you are trying to get your drinks.prices are not readily available and the cafe is very expensive two hot drinks and a bottle of water and a scone albeit delicious were just over eight pounds.
Having said this you can get entry for a year for twenty five pounds which is incredible and gets you ten percent off in the shop which has some lovely and unusual products.
All in all probably my favourite place and we go almost weekly in summer even though it is half an hours journey away.If you haven't been and get the opportunity to go don't miss out and preferably take a picnic onto Floras lawn and share in the magic of the past. Enjoy.x
