We were a little wary of visiting as we had an age range of children & thought they may find it boring. Much to our surprise they loved it. Well worth a visit. The skating ring was an added bonus & lunch in the bakery was superb.

OK it's impressive (especially the 2 biomes) but the £23.50 entrance fee is excessive even if your ticket entitles you to a year's free admission: how many of us can just pop down to Cornwall?! However that carping criticism aside, the Eden Project is well organised (well signed car parks with a park and ride scheme which certainly benefited a... More

Book online is cheaper than paying at the door and after activating your ticket it is valid for a year. Trekking through the rainforest Biome with all the bananas transporting by the monorail with the tropical climate remained me of my motherland. Meditterranean Biome just simply remained my time in Cyprus & South Africa. Enjoyed my trip there with my... More

We went as a special Christmas Winter Wonderland (late opening) was on. A long drive for a one night stay. Worth doing for sure if you are in the area!

This is brilliant all year round. Inspired and fascinating. but the traffic can be a real pain - especially when its raining and everyone is shunning the coast.

We had our doubts as to whether it would be worth a winter visit. We'd not been before but where very impressed with our overall experience. The site is spectacular when you leave the entrance and get a panoramic view over the gardens and domes. There is plenty to see to keep old and young amused for several hours and... More

Although, i do live in a place where I can experience a rainforest, I can imagine that this place would be a mine of information and learning for young children who can experience first hand other climates and ecosystems. You witness the birth of chocolate from the cocoa plant as an example. So, if your into getting your kids exposed... More

We visited the Eden project on a weekend in the summer to Cornwall from London. It was really interesting and great for budding photographers. The place is well organised with plenty of parking and signage. The gift shop is lovely - plenty of things to tempt you to spend. There are lots of things for kids to do and all... More

Probably would have been better in the summer. Food was very expensive £3.50 for a scone even though it looked delicious. Staff were very helpful and the shop sold some wonderful gifts
