We visited this place about 10 years ago and left completely underwhelmed after about an hour. This year we decided to give it another chance - big mistake. The one consolation was that we used Tesco points to visit, so at least we didn't part...More

So for £25 adult price and £14 for over fives you get to line up for long periods queuing for the chance to see a tropical plant, pineapple bush or to pay for your meal. I strongly recommend that you never visit on a rainy...More

It was a wet Monday morning on the second day of our family holiday in Cornwall, so looking around for indoor things to do, our search fairly quickly threw up the Eden Project. It's a massive 300 pound gorilla on the local tourist landscape, so...More

The man-made domes: rainforests and Mediterranean, are impressive both in scope (massive self-contained ecosystems), and in their educational objectives (teaching children to care about and preserve their environment). There is a lot of walking involved -- but you can catch the train back to the...More

Had been really looking forward to this trip and it was terrible. They seem to let in thousands and thousands or people with no regard for how crowded it gets. There were very long queues the whole way through the park. Not only was this...More

If you are thinking of going to 'lost gardens of Heligan', make sure you buy the combined ticket - works out much cheaper and you get an annual pass to the Eden project. Eden project by itself, is expensive and is more of an adult...More

This attraction was brilliant. I certainly felt the 'wow' factor seeing the dinosaurs and in the rainforest biome. The Mediterranean biome was great but a little less 'wow' for me. I arrived before they opened at about 9.15am and others were arriving too. I had...More

Had an amazing visit and would recommend coming here. A little expensive, but well worth it. They have a bit where you can over look everything within one of the domes, which is not to be missed.

We went on a very wet day mid week in July and the place was packed to the point it was difficult to get around. Looking at other responses it looks like it's better to go on a dry day, but then there's not much else to do... More

I am sorry I don't know. But if you go on line "Eden Project" we used this and found out the tickets where slighly cheaper and they lasted a year, this may tell you the size of the lockers. I hope this helps you!
