The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Heligan is one of the most mysterious estates in England. Lost to the brambles of time since the outbreak of WW1, this Sleeping Beauty was re-awakened in 1990 to become Europe’s largest garden restoration project. Today Heligan’s 200 acres are a paradise for the explorer, wildlife, plant lover and garden romantic.

friendly lovely place to dive

I have been diving with Viewpoint dive club for many years now and enjoy diving with the dive centre staff and other club members. I have undertaken many dive courses with the centre and have found the instructors to be very patient and accommodating. Would thoroughly recommend anyone to choose to dive with these guys.Thank you for your lovely review Leila. We work really hard to make our courses and dives a great experience for everyone and to make sure each person gets the help and attention they need, so it is great to know that all our instructors hard work pays off.
