Your Heligan Membership and Local Pass Questions Answered

Dear Visitors

Thank you for your ongoing support of The Lost Gardens.

During lockdown we have received various enquiries regarding Heligan Local Passes and Memberships and hope that the following information will answer these queries and also enable everyone to continue enjoying unlimited access to The Lost Gardens.

The Heligan Local Pass was created in 2017 to provide an affordable invitation to the local community to pay just one garden entry and be able to return to the Gardens free of charge throughout the year. The Local Pass is not an annual Membership and does not qualify for a two month extension to compensate the lockdown closure as there is no charge for return visits.

For anybody who missed the opportunity to purchase a Local’s Pass during the sale period in March, we are in response to the lockdown, offering you the continued invitation to purchase a Local’s Pass until Sunday 12th July by simply paying one Garden Entry and gaining free of charge entry until 28th February 2021.

To purchase a Heligan Local Pass, first click here to purchase your Garden Admission tickets. You will then redeem these tickets at the Heligan Ticket Office. Please let a member of the team know that you would like to upgrade your tickets to Heligan Locals’ Passes.

Please ensure that you bring photo ID and proof of Cornwall or Devon residency (e.g. driver’s licence and RECENT utility bill) to take up this incredible offer.

Heligan Membership (formerly Heligan Friends) created in 1994, is an annual subscription to the Gardens for those who wish to visit weekly and take advantage of Membership’s benefits. As an annual Membership, all Members will have their membership automatically extended by two months to cover the lockdown period.

Heligan Membership brings with it many additional benefits including exclusive early morning access (throughout 2020) as well as onsite discounts in our Retail and Catering outlets. Click here to read more about Heligan Membership.

For any Local Pass Holders who would like to upgrade to full Heligan Membership, we are offering an exclusive 2020 offer to do this whereby you get the cost of your Local Pass refunded against the cost of Membership; in addition your Membership will be valid for one full year from the time of upgrade.

For example, an upgrade of an existing Adult Local Pass (£15) will only cost £20 (not £35) and will give you a full year, plus benefits no matter when your Local Pass was due to expire.

To take advantage of this offer and all the benefits of Membership, upgrade your Local Pass or Garden Admission ticket whilst onsite by visiting the Heligan Shop.
