Eden Project, Bodelva

#1 of 1,073 in Things to do in Cornwall
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.

  • I strongly agree with all negative comments and I'm supprised why (why?!?!) is soo many positive? First of all - price...too high we paid £55/pp for 1h walking through ordinary plants and restaurants ...  more »
  • I really enjoy the visit to Eden - it doesn’t take up the full day, but the extra themes add to the adventure here and is what we prefer. The only thing I find is that it is too expensive for what it ...  more »
  • Absolutely amazing! Worth a visit if you are going to Cornwall. There are 2 biomes to visit as well as a stage for events and another building but that was closed during our visit. You can go right to...  more »

  • The first time I visited the Eden Project 7, maybe 8 years ago with family, it was absolutely amazing. I’d raved about it since then. So this year on a romantic holiday to Cornwall, I took my other half. This is not the Eden Project I remember. It’s cramped and tacky. I still have no idea why they have an ice rink there... There used to be a lovely outdoor space with interesting sculptures as you went from one dome to the other, now it’s all enclosed with a garish eating area and over priced ice cream. Save yourself the horrendously overpriced tickets (£25 pp if bought online). The Eden Project is a product of it’s own success and a bad one at that.
  • Fantastic place to visit, so interesting and plenty to see and little play areas dotted around. Land train (tractor train) always a hit with young ones. Arrived when they had space theme, excellent fun for little ones. I understand they change the themes. Restaurant had delicious food, Mediterranean restaurant was best. Spent lots of time there, bit dear but value for money if can do multiple trips as ticket is effectively an annual pass at the moment
  • The Eden Project should be on every botanists bucket list! It is well designed and filled with the most diverse, beautiful plants you can find in the World. You must go there, it is a wonderful place for you and the family. Now, the down-side is the price of things and getting into the Eden project – this a view from a working-class man. However, it is value for money if you enjoy the beauty of plants. The Eden Project is like going into a different World. A truly magical place.
  • One of the centre-pieces of the Eden Project is the world's largest indoor rainforest - depending on how excited you are about this is a good indicator of if this attraction is for you. There is a really incredibly display of flora from all over the world, and as the paths playfully wind around it really makes the Eden Project feel much bigger than it is. Most of all, the biomes are really impressive and a real all-weather attraction. If botanical gardens are not your thing and you are going as a large family, you are likely to consider it over-priced. But since the Eden Project is actually a charity, all the funding goes back into running and developing the site and I personally think it's a fantastic place. If my review and photos were helpful for you, please give me a thumbs up 👍🏼 Thanks!
  • I honestly was surprised at how much there was to do and learn while we visited. As a Cornwall resident I managed to secure a pass for us to use unlimited time throughout the year. I see this pass getting a lot of use. There is always something going on. Well worth a visit.
