I just found the whole visit very underwhelming. After a lengthy wait to get into the park (despite buying tickets in advance to save time queuing) I found it decidedly smaller than expected and very crowded. Most people seemed to be swarming around the cafes and eating areas though, as there wasn't really that much to see in the beds... More

This was our first visit to the Eden project and we didn't know what to expect apart from the Biodomes. We thought the Rainforest had just so much it beat Kew Gardens and Sydney's tropical gardens hands down. The sheer thrill of being in the middle of so much jungle is indescribable. the Mediterranean dome was a poor relation and... More

This is not a cheap day out, but in my view it is an excellent experience and I did not mind the steep admittance fee (and there are concessions) available as it means the project is supported and new features can be planned for the future. Everything is very well thought through and executed, from the wonderful tropical rain forest... More

Wanted to visit this place for a long time with my family. Was on holiday at st ives and decided to use my tesco boost which did save me money on the price. Arrived at the place and parking was quite easy and used the bus to get to the site. Must admit it was quite busy due to the... More

The rainforest sphere is brilliant. But apart from that, especially if you regularly holiday in the med like my family does, it's nothing special. I'm a student and managed to get in for the entrance price of £18 but the rest of my family had to pay full price (which wasn't an issue) but I feel it is very overpriced... More

What a well organised attraction! Everything was so smooth. We were directed to a parking space, picked up by a bus, left at the entrance, with a short walk. A very pleasant and friendly young girl greeted us and took no time to give us our badges for entry. As we went through the doors an amazing sight was before... More

My first observation is that £25 a head and £6 for a guide book is a lot of money for what you get. If you are really into static displays with lots of reading than you could probably spend a long time here and think it was better value. However that said it is still a very interesting place to...

We found the Eden Project a great place to just wander around and relax, it was amazing to read what they had done with an old clay pit. However, we went with a 4yo and there was very little to keep a young child interested, a small play area or sensory garden would have been nice, it's a minor critisism... More

What a shame. We planed a weeks visit to Cornwall with the main reason being to visit the Eden Project. Really felt as though we shouldn't have bothered. After queuing for over an hour to get in (along with many hundreds of others) the entrance fees in my opinion are way over the top at £25 per adult. We were... More
