Garden · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Eden Project represents a complex of outdoor gardens with plants from across the world. The tropical garden houses plants found in the, not surprisingly, tropical climate, like coffee, bananas, and papaya. A canopy walkway allows you to have a look at the rainforest and learn about it from a different perspective. The Mediterranean section grows olives, aloe vera, tulips, palm trees, and other species from that part of the world. At the park's main building, you can watch educational movies and attend community workshops and gardening lessons.

  • Any time we are in the Devon area, we try to hit the Eden Project for the day. My husband and I love it there! Last time we came, we had the great luck of seeing not one but two rare plants that had bloomed, one of which only blooms once in a humans lifetime.
  • The Eden Project is one of these sites that you have to visit. A wonderful achievement in the world of both engineering and botanical conservation. It brings the kids out in adults and brings the kids closer to nature they might have never seen before. Containing a large amount of plants and different ecosystems it's quite interesting to pass from one to the other. Either at winter or during summer the project is always open (do be careful as in winter the outside doesn't look as nice as in the blossom of spring) never less the inside always remains the same. Recommended as one of those key visits to complete if you are within 2 hours of it as it will take your breath away. Highly recommended for all groups.
  • A very nice place to visit, a wonderful selection of plants and their dream of education ( mixed in with a wonderful art collection) is fantastic. My favourite piece is definitely "seed", which has a spectacular sensory feel to it, engaging the viewers sight, hearing, and spacial awareness. The collection of plants and associated information plaks are astounding and engaging and I will definitely take the time to visit here again.
  • A place to visit at least a few times during the year to take advantage of the plants and trees throughout the seasons. Always exhibitions on and very kid friendly. Loads of food available and a great shop too. Visit anytime.
  • Have to say the Eden Project have excelled themselves this Christmas, firstly with a staff Christmas party evening for 65 of us. We were looked after like kings with a lively fun evening of good music, dancing and food. We used the complementary tickets a week later for a amazing night tour of the beautifully lit biomes. The live orchestra and choir really topped of a first class evening. Eden is the pride of Cornwall!
