Eden is famous for its Biomes, the world's largest greenhouses which nestle in a giant 50 metre deep crater the size of 30 football pitches, forming the centrepiece of a spectacular global garden.
There's always something new to see at Eden even if you've been many times before. From new landscapes to changing seasonal menus, new products in our shop and our annual programme of events, see our website for further details.
Even if you've been to Eden before you won't have seen it this way! Climb way above the treetops and get a bird's eye view of the Rainforest, that high frontier usually only seen by the most intrepid of explorers and scientists.
- How do I get to Eden?
- You can get to Eden by walking, biking, train, bus or car. Walkers and cyclists enjoy a discount off the adult entry charge, and children under 15 accompanied by an adult come free. If coming by car Eden is well signposted from both the A30 from Exeter and the A391/390 from Plymouth. Visitors from outside the county can take the M5 southbound, to Exeter, where the motorway splits into to the A30. Take the A30 and continue until you reach the Innis Downs junction (A 391) from which Eden is signposted. There is ample parking at Eden and a park and ride service operates from the outer car parks.
- What about Access, will I be able to get around the site ok?
- Eden is dedicated to making access as easy as possible for all our visitors. It’s a large site so a park-and-ride buggy service is in operation to transport people from their cars to the site and back again if required. Disabled car parks are close to the visitor centre but if assistance is required you can request a buggy service. Our land train and park-and-ride buses are designed to accommodate wheelchairs. You'll find plenty of seating around the site so you can enjoy your visit at your own pace. If you have a carer to help you the they are admitted free of charge. We welcome guide and assistance dogs.
- Can I bring my dog?
- We don't encourage visitors to bring dogs to Eden, and, other than guide dogs, they're not allowed on the main site. We do have very limited shaded car parking in three of our car parks available on a first come first served basis but still we strongly advise against bringing dogs to the Project.
- Is there much for children to do?
- Eden is great for kids. There are imaginative children's play areas, impromptu storytelling, workshops and leafy places to play with shortcuts and hideaways, stepping stones and sandpits. We also have fantastic programme of events for families taking place every school holidays - from den building to ice skating there's something for everyone.
