It is totally unlike anywhere else I have ever been. We went in spring but I would love to go in Summer Autumn and winter. The biospheres are magical and so well kept. There is something new around every corner. Plants, carvings statues etc. Plus super food outlets that serve proper food. Everyone was so helpful . We had a... More

By staying on site at the YHA it is really easy to visit when it opens this gives you the opportunity to feel that you are in the rainforest on your own. I visited more than once and got to see new plants and birds each time. Is it expensive depends on your budget and the number of times you... More

We went here for my wifes birthday during our trip to Cornwall. WOW - What an experience! The Rainforest Biome especially. Some smaller cafes were not open (time of year) but that didnt detract from an absolutely amazing trip!

A place I have always wanted to visit and at last managed to see it for myself. The project is set in an old clay pit and is impressive when you see it, looking much bigger than I had expected. There is plenty of parking and a special area to park if you have a dog, including sheltered parking. You... More

We spent a lovely time at the Eden Project, although we felt we had seen all we wanted to in about three hours, and I don't think we would return, so our years free pass for our charitable donation seems a little wasted sadly. I would agree with the other people who have said that is it very expensive -... More

Firstly we accept that monies charged do go to the conservation and the development of this 'project', however paying the same admission fee in March to the same fee that will be charged in the summer seems unfair. For two adults it was £39.00 (with 15% discount) and then £6.00 for an information booklet. You can choose to make the... More

What an achievement, a explosion of flowers and flora from different parts of the world. Plenty of car parking and if your not up to walking down to the project there are tractor trains to transport you down and back. The facility is still developing and tries to cater not just for those interested in the plants and flowers but... More

Whole site just bursting into life for spring with daffodils & other spring flowers everywhere. Rainforest biome very humid & too uncomfortable for me (although fascinating), Mediterranean biome also well laid out with lots of different plants (who knew that California had a Mediterranean climate?) Choice of food not bad although not all outlets open, although there was nearly a... More

This is an extraordinary place demonstrating the possibility of turning an open cast mine, devoid of all life into a growing, living demonstration of what Is possible. The fact that Mr. Smith and his colleagues have achieved this in twelve short years is all the more gob-smacking. This is an absolute five star visit and attraction with winding walkways, that...
