#1 of 1,172 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. Make Eden Project a centerpiece of your Bodelva vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bodelva itinerary planner.

  • We've been meaning to go for years, and finally got the chance to go. It's easy, with global travel, to be used to seeing tropical and mediterranean flora, but it's a remarkable achievement to grow...  more »

  • Its a glorified garden centre, that charges a small fortune to get in. My advice find a garden centre with free entry as for the caffee take out a mortgage again over priced and not all that good...  more »

  • The concept and attention to detail is fantastic, sadly not so for the Med Kitchen, the food is over-priced and not good quality. One of my guests was given the wrong pizza then told that they'd have to wait 20 minutes for a replacement, no apologies just arrogance, not the way a restaurant shoul be run.Yes we will return to Eden but will bring our own food in future.
  • rather pricey (£58 for two) but the ticket allows access all year, amazing biomes, stunning exhibits, great food and the Christmas light shows are beautiful. definitely worth a long visit
  • The rainforest dome is fascinating. Lots the look at and learn as well as high walkways to experience. The smaller Mediterranean dome is also beautiful. The core has always got interesting exhibitions. There are outside play areas, an ice rink (winter only) and a shop to enjoy too.
  • We had been here before just after they had built it. Disappointing to see that you are not treated as anything special by being a member of the Eden Project and you still need to stand in the queue to get in. Best to see just one area that you are interested in as you would be there for a long time to get to see all of the projects that are available. Much more needed for people who have difficulty in walking and you have to walk around a lot 🤪 should be able to hire scooters or something like that to help you get around because you can not always bring your own with you especially if you live a long way away.
  • Way to expansive for what you get. The gardens aren’t that elaborate or impressive and you almost trip over all the shops and stalls which make it seem like one big cash cow. They say the project has an educational purpose however we found the information and explanations in the gardens very limited. This is more an amusement park for the masses than a botanical garden worth your time and money.
