What we liked: Walk around the sunny perimeter Children being taught about nature Explanations about each plant The Mediterranean restaurant. Nice atmosphere, good food. Good selection of plants, cleanliness. What we didn't like: Use of loudspeakers inside the domes for children's activities. Sounded a bit like inside Centreparks. Explanations of saving the planet, but idling bus in the coach park.... More

We last visited about 15 years ago, when it first opened. Everything has grown bigger. It is a major attraction in Cornwall, and well geared up to coping with a large number of visitors at any one time. It is extremely educational, and I suspect gets a large number of visits from school groups.

It's been 8 years since the last visit, and a lot has changed. Still a very positive experience but there is an increase in commercial activity. I found putting part of a biome over to a Mediterranean cafe unacceptable, when there are already other cafes on site. The cafe obviously adds to income generation, but it would have been nicer...

Thought it a bit expensive, however a great idea and very interesting. Coming from a sub tropical area of the world a lot of it looked like our back yard and local forest, which may have influenced our overall opinion, perhaps of more interest if you are from cooler climate. Well signposted from the main roads, so easy to find... More

Visited in the Easter holiday, but luckily it wasnt too busy. Found parking easily, and after walking to the entrance we went through in no time as we bought our tickets via Tesco Clubcard. It was lovely to walk in the biomes, but I would have loved to see more signs explaining what is what. Eg. We read something about... More

A nice day out. We particularly enjoyed the rainforest area with the high viewing platform - not for the faint hearted! Much of the Project is out doors, so pretty weather dependant. The food is quite expensive, so I reccomend a packed lunch for those on a budget. Free drinking water is available in the canteen area.

Its been a while since I visited and I was struck by how quiet it was compared to previous years when I was a regular visitor. However it was a lovely sunny Sunday so the beach probably drew the day trippers. I went by train and bus and was pleased with the convenience of both. Showing my bus ticket also... More

We arrived to a well organised car parking system. The biodomes were beautifully. The atmosphere was of walking through a tropical forest . Not too many signs so the natural surroundings came to the fore. Lots of places of interest, a surprise round every corner. Would have loved to have more recorded birds and forest sounds playing in the background... More

This had been on my list of places to visit for more years than it should have been, so this Easter it was the destination of choice for myself and thirteen year old son. I must add that whilst I had no great expectations, the reason for visiting was largely curiosity and to find out more about the sites history... More
