“Good day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

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 was quite poor and boring.

The food options were also a highlight the smoothie which is a available in the tropical biome was nice blend of banana and coconut and the main restaurant served some stunning food we had the rataouille and chicken pie and would definitely have them again.

Also top tip would be buy tickets in advance and gift aid your entrance price that way you get an annual pass so you can visit again if you want, we are personally thinking of going again in the summer when the biomes will be different and improvement works completed.

“Light show not good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

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 of laser light. Children would have been bored out of their mind, put a sleigh with reindeer shooting across, just so,etching to spice it up a bit!
We'll be back because we love the project, but will give the light show a miss.

“Best Attraction in Cornwall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

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.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

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 it - even in November

“Autumnal Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

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 enjoyed the colourful maples, dogwoods and salvias, to name but a few. I'm sure the Eden project is wonderful throughout the seasons, and offers new things to see at any time of year. We had to make do with just one day.

The staff were all very helpful and informative, answering questions and chatting about the place. To see its full extent you do need to be fairly fit, but there are good cafés to visit, plus a very well stocked shop. We stopped at the café in the Mediterranean Bio-dome and were much taken with the numerous birds who apparently choose to live inside it for their whole lifespan.

Toilets were clean and plentiful.

We would thoroughly recommend a visit for anyone interested in the environment and nature.
