Ant time as the biomes are under cover of course and every time you visit different plants are at their best.

If you can plan your visit outside school holidays Cornwall is lovely in June, early July and September and October.

If you like Gardens check out Heligan as well

I went last summer in mid August and the weather was perfect. All the outdoor plants were blooming. As for the biomes, there will be some days when parts of the rainforest biome might be closed due to high heat or humidity (I guess they don't want people getting heat strokes or passing out). When I went, all parts of the rainforest biome were opened but be sure to dress for a warm environment and drink lots of water.

The indoor part is fantastic any time of the year, the out door part though is best during spring or summer but to be honest the indoor part is the main reason to visit. Just be aware the rainforest part is very hot and humid so be cautious if you have breathing problems

Hi, I believe during the summer, there's a lot to see and explore around the biomes so you need good weather, also to see the gardens blooming

I would suggest June to September. We went in May and things were just starting to bud. I would also advise a cool day to visit. It gets very hot in the biodomes and there can be a lot of outdoor walking too.

I'm sure someone who 'knows' about plants etc will give a better answer but I would think it doesn't really matter when you visit. Assuming you are travelling to Cornwall for more than just Eden it would also depend on what else you wanna do?

The domes have their own climate and from memory the majority of the terraces are plants. Would think Spring and Summer, specifically May to September mostly for the amount of outdoor viewing there is. There are different 'themes' so worth checking out the website when planning.

I'd agree, anytime throughout the year would be good. Could get super busy during school holidays though.

Any time really as it is mostly indoors that the two main domes and the restaurant but I would suggest Spring - Summer when the outdoor beds are at their best. Hope you enjoy your visit

Probably out of school holidays. Also on a very hot day it would be far too hot in the Rainforest Biome!
