If you have an expired Local Pass, your pass can be renewed online at any time and will not require you to visit the gardens to do so. Please click here to renew.

Heligan discounts are exclusive to Heligan Members (not Local Pass Holders). For information on upgrading to full Heligan Membership, please click here.

Are there any days when my Local Pass is not valid?
Local Passes will always provide you with access to the gardens but there may be an additional charge for some special events.

Do I have to join the queue with my Local Pass?
Yes. You will need to join our daily admissions queue for garden entry.

Can my son/daughter use their local pass on a school trip to The Lost Gardens of Heligan?
Here at Heligan we offer discounted education rates along with a generous allowance of free places for teachers and staff. To make it viable to continue to offer these benefits we unfortunately cannot accept local passes as a means of entry within a school booking.
