Visit the world famous botanical gardens, the beautiful landscape filled with thousands of plants spread across 20 acres of land. Visually the Eden Project is also instantly recognizable for the two giant biomes (undercover domes). One houses an amazing tropical rainforest and the second discover a world of Mediterranean, South African and Californian plants all within an environment kept under a controlled climate.
Having first opened its’ doors in 2001 the ethos has remained the same, providing sustainability and support for environmental projects in house and around the world. The Eden Sessions also host musical events once a year and have featured acts such as Tom Jones, Manic Street Preachers, Oasis, Motorhead and Elton John.
Gates open at between 9am and 9.30am with the giant biomes available to visitors an hour later, closing times however vary throughout the year. Tickets are £25 for adults, £14 for children (under 4’s go free) with student prices at £20 and over 60’s £22.50 plus family tickets are available at £69.
Nearest airport is Newquay Cornwall where you are able to transfer from all major UK airports, although in keeping with the Eden Project eco-friendly approach other public transport is a more viable option. Arrive early and allow the whole day for your visit, book tickets online and dress in accordance to the weather as although the domes are kept in tropical conditions there are large outdoor gardens not to be missed too.
