A garden for all seasons, Heligan is sure to delight whether you decide to visit during the quiter winter months, when the unusually mild climate allows the exotic plants to still thrive, or during mid summer. 

**Dogs should be kept on their lead at all times as there are livestock and poultry, as well as varied wildlife, around the site.
