Well, I thought I was being clever going to the Eden on a rainy day. Half the county had the same idea, sadly. We didn't get off to a good start, as even though we arrived within half an hour of opening, we had to queue for 1 hour to reach one of the overflow car parks (muddy field). Howver... More

We were told that Eden Project is packed on rainy days so we gave up a sunny day in our week in Cornwall to visit. I am not into plants and gardens, but Eden Project engaged the whole family. Every minute of every day you use something made from plants and the whole of the planet depends on plants. Eden... More

We visited the Eden Project in May '07. We followed a long line of cars to one of the car parks. It was busy, we thought we were going to see something good. Including the guide book, it was 32 pounds for 2 of us!!! Having been to both the jungle and the mediterranean, we found both areas a bit... More

I had heard so much about the Eden project and it was one of our reasons for visiting Cornwall. Maybe my expectations had just been raised too much and whilst we had a pleasant enough time I still left with a tinge of dissapointment. The humid bio-dome is excellent but the mediterranean dome is a bit lacklustre - my tip... More

Considering the amount of publicity about the Eden Project and its commitment to raising environmental awareness, I was slightly disappointed with the experience. I felt that it failed as a garden (the biomes were crowded and the meditteranean one seemed a bit sparse) and that it also didn't really make enough of a link between the plants/biomes and the environmental...

The Eden Project is little known even within the UK. It was conceived in the late 90's and initially funded as a Landmark Millennium Project to mark the year 2000. It has grown since then to become a major attraction worth a full day's stay. About $240 million has been spent converting an old pit mine into a huge exhibition... More

I have seen the Eden project develop since it's intial construction phase and being a local, have been able to return many times. The magic of it is that it makes the connection between people and plants accessible, through stunning landscpae design, good educational programmes and innovative features. The economic repercussions around St Austell have been tremendous, giving small local... More

I visited Eden Project April 5th 2007. I've got sent a brochure from Cornwall called 'Cornwall Garden Guide. The Eden Project is in that catalogue together with Abbey Garden in Tresco, Helligan Garden, and so on. Actually while I still can recommend this attraction to garden lovers I think, in my humble opinion, that it is a completely different kind... More

Although it wasn't the warmest of weather for our Autumnal visit we had a really good day out at the Eden Project. There is so much information about all the plants; animals; habitats etc that I think everyone must go away having learnt something new! The food in the dining hall was good too, it is only too often that... More

Great to see everyone recycling their waste from the tea shop. They flush the loos using rainwater. All sorts of things to make you think. Great for children to see the plants that things are made from. Open 3 nights a week in the summer till 9 (Tues Weds Thurs). Means you can arrive about 3 (no queues) and spend... More
