This was a welcome change from the beaches which dominated our holiday. The Mediterranean and rainforest environments were fascinating and we loved seeing the plants which make up many aspects of our diet.

Top tip before you go - book online! Saves the queues etc and 10% too. You are given a 30 day window so do not have to stick to one date. (You can include the Gardens of Heligan too) Second top tip - get there early then you can park near the complex and will not face a length walk... More

This is a venture that wears its heart on its sleeve - it does try very hard to push the sustainable future agenda. The Rainforest biome is quite magnificent. The Mediterranean one is less spectacular but quite cute. There is a lot of ground to cover, literally, so check out the maps before you go there, to avoid needless walking.... More

Whilst on holiday in padstow we decide to visit here for the day. The journey was nice and simple as it was easily signposted. Free car park and bus that drops you straight to the door. Went on the hangloose zip wire for an extra £20 each on top of the entry fee however well worth the money, staff very... More

GBP 25.- per person entry fee are ridiculous and it sounds a bit funny to have free access is you return within 12 months - how many tourists will/can do? The Garden itself is pretty interesting nevertheless we were there on a rather quited day and would have to have to wait for 20 minutes for a top-down view in... More

My wife and I live in Cornwall and travelled to the Eden Project with our family of four other adults -three older grandchildren and one younger grandchild of child of six - the overall entry cost is not cheap - and we later discovered -poor value - but we were looking forward to the experience and my youngest grandchild was...

Recently visited the Eden Project mid August - OMG how over priced is it for what it is. There is really not much to do and there was a Dinosaur event going on that was advertised as a large dome with water in the middle with lots around the side - however it was 3 heads that moved then 2... More

Advice for visiting, wear comfortable shoes, bring a stroller if you have small children, carry water, and plan on spending the day. Two things were very striking about Eden, firstly the location, set in an old pit it seems like the plants are coming up everywhere, secondly the domes are very impressive and make you feel tiny. Inside the two... More

Really about a day and a half to get round. Love that much of the food is grown there. The high platform in the rainforest biome is brilliant, but not for the faint hearted.

I've heard a lot about The Eden Project and was really looking forward to experiencing this for myself with my little lady who being blind I felt would get a lot from it too, I know £25 a person is a lot but if you walk into the project you are entitled to a 10% discount on each ticket. Plus... More
