Visited whilst away with our 3 year old son. Biomes are big and plenty of paths to walk around, although very little to do for small kids within the biomes. The core has some play areas and the dry ice sculpture which amuse us for a good while. Whilst it is a fascinating development from wasteland under the water level to this very modern eco project, I do feel it is a little pricey for a day visit. Glad we've put in our book to say 'we've done it,' though.

We decided to go to Eden for the afternoon, it ended up being a very expensive day and we got very little out of it.
We visited on Thursday November 8th.
We arrived around 12.30.
We pre booked our tickets the night before online. We proceeded into Eden and begun our afternoon adventures.
Several sections were closed off due to a Craft fair that was happening that night, we also found out the cost for entry was free tomorrow but we all full price!
Right on 3.30 all the exhibits closed.
Our day was rushed and did not enjoy our experience at Eden, especially knowing full well the next day was free (donation for Macmillan Nurses).
It's very expensive for what it is and food and drink is also very expensive. £5 for 2 very small coffees.
If you plan on going call ahead to make sure that planned events don't alter the times and entry to exhibits.
On a positive the Duty Manager Dan was super nice and very courteous to our complaint.
Part of our group (family overseas) recieved a full refund

Overall the place is great but to be honest it's a little over priced
Though we all did enjoy the Ice Skating

The Eden Project is, and always has been a wonderful place for education. The planting in the rain forest biome is amazing, and produces some real wow moments for my children. The Core building has recently been revamped and the exhibits are interesting, however they are not as hands on as I would like to see (We the Curious in Bristol should have been used as inspiration).
What The Eden Project is poor at is updating exhibits. Many of the outdoor exhibits have been there for many years, and now look tatty. This removes much of the impact and message that they should have.

A park and ride goes to eden, a very good idea. It was very slow going through the entrance, we had bought tickets online, which are normally scanned. Amazing, how this was all thought out and made, very cleverly done. The rain forest was quite a trek up for me, and hotter the further up we went, but worth the trek. The med bio dome was lovely, realy enjoyed both very much. The gardens are a picture too.

Eden project is a very relaxed feel gardens. Under cover in a fantastic setting. Beautiful waterfall in one half, does feel extremely warm in this half so be prepared, although they do have a cool room you can stand in for a while. In the other half feels totally different. Toilets are available downstairs via a food and drinks hall

We visited the Eden Project as part of a coach trip in October. The weather was beautiful so we were able to stroll around the outside gardens as well as the bio-spheres. Pictures of the Eden Project don't do it justice. The bio spheres are BIG so even if the weather is not behaving there is still plenty to see and do. WE walked all day including to and from the coach park. There is a tractor with carriages available but you'll have quite a wait during busy times. A wonderful day with very tired legs by teatime.

An absolute gem off a place! Wonderfully helpful staff. As a wheelchair user I was able to get one of their electric wheelchairs to use..(booking in advance is advised as during high summer they tend to run out of them!)
The bio domes they have are absolutely amazing. If you go on a chilly day walking into the domes will so warm you up!
Excellent place for learning and great for kids.
Food hall is amazing with lots of choice for vegans and vegitarians and people with allergies.
So good we are going back next year!

Very expensive and to my mind not worth the hype!!

Unfortunately I found the staff to be very very rude.
Won’t be returning

We visited as a party of five adults between 33 and 62, some are interested in gardening, others not so much. That really didn’t matter. The Eden Project is beautiful!
Our tickets are valid for 1 year and I would love to go back and see it in every season, if only it wasn’t so far away.
In the outside areas there is so much variety and the plants and trees lining the quarry were beautiful in their autumnal colours.
Inside the biodomes there is even more diversity, fragrance and eye catching colour.
We were there for approximately 5 hours and we really needed it. We had a hot fpdrink in the cafe in the Core and had lunch in the Link. Prices were quite high but the money goes back into the Eden Project as a registered charity.
I wish I could visit more often, it is truly good for the soul to see nature like this.

Excellent accommodation, friendly staff to welcome us on arrival, the snooze box was really clean and well laid out. Most importantly the bed was very comfortable, the YHA Eden Project was perfect for what we needed.
