Eden Project Tours
About Eden Project, Cornwall
The Eden Project (Cornish: Edenva) is a visitor attraction in Cornwall, England. Inside the two biomes are plants that are collected from many diverse climates and environments. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 2 km (1.2 mi) from the town of St Blazey and 5 km (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall. The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The biomes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The largest of the two biomes simulates a Rainforest environment and the second, a Mediterranean environment. The attraction also has an outside botanical garden which is home to many plants and wildlife native to Cornwall and the UK in general; it also has many plants that provide an important and interesting backstory, for example, those with a prehistoric heritage.Wikipedia

Amazing place for both children and adults. Enough to keep both entertained for the day. The work the teams have done here to bring this to life (literally) is phenomenal. The ongoing efforts to grow and expand are obvious. Really recommended. Great food here too for lunch.
Awesome. Unimaginable. This place was a dump house and has been converted into paradise. Take your kids here they will love it. It's fantastic how technology can be used to create wonders. Worth the journey from London
I had been looking forward to visiting this project for years. It was absolutely awful. Crammed like sardines with absolutely no control of visitor numbers. It was just a frustrating and horrible experience. The Space exhibition was badly produced with poor lighting, set and visuals. Too many simple info boards that you had no time to read as the solid throng of people moved relentlessly forward. The rainforest which should have been the highlight was rammed. No time to stop, look and soak up the wonders of nature. Just trying to avoid the people in front and not be run over by the people behind. Sadly this now seems no more than a money making project.
An amazing journey to the rain Forrest and exotic gardens of the East. The kids enjoyed running around the whole facility bashing into flowers, walls, rockeries and sculptures. I have always wanted to go and it was worth the life long wait coupling a 7 hour drive. Beautiful flowers, vegetables, water features and live music playing in the arena. We managed to get through the shop at the end without ruining the debit cards however, I did manage to buy some lovely local cider and honey. As we got back to the car park we noticed several toys in the buggy that we didn't purchase. Naughty little William.
Went there with our 3 kids (9,11,13). Cost £85. The place is great if you are into horticulture. We aren't. The highlight was the ice cream we had. Feels like we wasted a day here. In my opinion, kids should be free to such an attraction. The place was full of kids being dragged along by parents, moaning about how bored they were. We were so looking forward to coming here, sadly, I'll never come back and won't recommend this to anyone as a family day out.
