There are so many beautiful and wonderful gardens to visit in Cornwall, but Heligan is my personal favourite - there is so much to see and do there for all ages.

“There's no other theatre like it in the world. Carved out of the rocks on a dramatic cliff-scape at Porthcurno, there are enough productions during the summer to capture the attention of everyone. Also will be able to play spot the dolphins and seals out at sea too. ”
