A great place to visit where dogs are allowed to visit also if kept on a lead, lots of flowers and veg patches to explore aswell as some farm animals, has a few cafes with selection of foods as well as a restaurant which sells alittle more than the cafes but not too much more.
Lots of toilets dotted around. Mostly wheelchair accessible but there are a few small steps to so many need to find a new way round to get into each garden as one end doesn't have steps.
A great family day out great value for money which lots of friendly staff members.

An interesting insight into the workings of a large estate. Good variety of interest and good exercise too. Facilities are excellent.

We had a wonderful day at Heligan today. For the last four years they have been remembering those lost in the so called Great War. Their response to the loss of those gardeners who worked at Heligan, as well as others like them who perished, was quite beautiful; understated, respectful and exactly appropriate.
Heligan is just the only place in the world which should be on EVERYONEs bucket list. Well done Heligan and Thank you for the last four years

The Gardens them self are stunning, however we felt the cost for 2 adults and 1 child coming close to £40 was too much as our day only lasted 3 hours - including time spent having lunch in the cafe, exploring the art exhibition and all the areas of the Estate before we found ourselves back at the exit.

We came not knowing quite what to expect, as we came late in the year. We loved all the gardens, so neatly laid out. The pumpkins were amazing, as was the scarecrow. Was slightly disappointed at the sleeping lady as there was a lot of moss over her face.

Visited the gardens recently with David Hoggs Tour, and was amazed by the sheer size of it, the well maintained gardens and the different types of Trees, Plants, Flowers, Vegetable Garden, Spices Garden, Green Houses etc. We strolled through and had time to admire everything and also took photos with beautiful scenery as well. I quite liked the Harvest Fruit display which was very colourful. We visited the "Jungle" and went on the Burma Rope Bridge - Not for the faint hearted! We also had a chance to see the sculpture of the Grey Lady and also the Giant's Head and bought some Organic Tea at the Lobbs Farm shop. Highly recommended!

We went to the gardens in the last week in October and were blessed with bright sunshine which made the walks amongst imposing trees and tropical shrubs delightful. Some of the sculptures, covered in moss, were impressive. But the highlight amongst the 200 acres was, for us, the Jungle. A raised boardwalk meanders through the area and takes you around four ponds, a small waterfall, through exotic tropical planting and across a Burmese style rope bridge. The microclimate here is 5% warmer than the surrounding countryside and helps create the feeling that one is wandering through a tropical landscape.
There are easily accessed amenities -cafes, toilets and a shop - as well as a large car park. We had a very enjoyable day and we can recommend it for adults and children alike.
One word of warning - don't trust your satnav to get you there. Use a map. We relied on satnav and were taken down narrow lanes and farm tracks. Not good!!

Highly disappointed in this attraction. Misleading advertising. States that it is lost however we found it very easily using street signs... 1 star ⭐️

I had long wanted to visit the gardens. Wow they did not disappoint. Our weather was good and it was great to walk around and see so many super trees. Do not miss the trees when you visit they have excellent examples with gorgeous bark. The display of pumpkins was fabulous. We were a large group of mixed ages and walking abilities so the signs indicating which paths were very steep were most helpful. It is most certainly worth the entrance fee. There is a small plant sale so I now have part of Heligan with me in my garden. Plenty of places to sit and take in the views and rest. The shop was well stocked and had the usual gifts as well as many unusual garden ornaments. We had lunch in the café and although very busy (school holidays) we enjoyed a nice lunch. Seating is both inside and out. The place is so well maintained and is a credit to all who work there.

There’s so much to see and do at Heligan. As much of a treat for adults as kids.

The hidden valley is a marvel and the grounds are always so well maintained. Staff are helpful and friendly and they always do something seasonal to keep things fresh. The shop is great and the admission price for a full day is very good.

I would have given this five stars, but for the hot food, which is a letdown for the price - a bit lukewarm and tasteless. The sandwiches and pasties were the biggest hits amongst our large party.
