Visited in the middle of November, still worth a visit but the best time is (obviously) the spring and summer. The biomes are still open but a lot of construction work in the rainforest biome did detract. Will return but not at this time of year

Went on a Sunday whilst we were staying at the Youth Hostel on site. The domes were really interesting and well worth a visit, even despite works going on in the rainforest which I think will only improve it further. Must say however other than the domes there wasn't much to gain our interest, the core was in my opinion... More

The Eden project is a fantastic place to visit, however we went to see the light show and to,be honest it really was not that good. We went on Sunday and the first half hour the music was dreadful!! The lasers were not a lot better. So much more could have been done. No Christmas theme, just a gentle flow... More

The Eden Project is amazing, with so much diversity of things to see and do. Every month there is something different for the children to take part in or explore in this ever changing natural growing environment. So many choices and styles of places to eat, we sometimes go just to have lunch and an afternoon stroll.

November meant little queuing but rain & cold also meant the gardens were not at their best and too wet on the day we visited to walk around. The domes are so interesting and a great place for children,we saw a very excited group of school kids. It is an informative,well thought out lay out and I would wholeheartedly recommend... More

Visiting the Eden Project has been on our bucket list for years and we finally made it, courtesy of a 5 day break with Just Go Holidays. What so impressed us was the beauty of the outside gardens and bio-domes with so few people about. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. At this time of year we... More

Visited here when it first opened, and wasn't disappointed on my return. Lots of things to do and see, even out of season. The meal in Eden kitchen cafe was lovely - the spicy baked ratatouille was just that!! Well worth the ticket price. (You can save a bit of money by getting a combined ticket with the Lost Gardens...

Remarkable achievement to create tropical and mediterranean environments in such an unlikely place. A lot to see but the whole enterprise is clearly geared to cope with large numbers of visitors and so it feels like more of a theme park than a botanical miracle. Would visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan again but not sure about the Eden Project.

The rave reviews brought us there, and we were even happy to pay the full price (GBP25 or slightly cheaper if booking online) since they make it abundantly clear that your contribution is going towards building the ongoing dream. But I couldn't help feel that they really could make it a lot more interactive and engaging - eg to help... More

Me and my boyfriend visited the Eden Project on 12th November 2016. It was a brilliant experience and there's so much to explore. The only downside was the weather wasn't brilliant so we couldn't really properly explore outside. The biomes are fascinating. I will definitely be returning when the new walkway in the rainforest biome is finished 😊
