About The Eden Project
For details of our opening times please visit www.edenproject.com
The Eden Project explores how people can work together and with nature to change things for the better.
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.
Rainforest Aerial Walkway
Don’t miss our Rainforest Aerial Walkway – a chance to take to the trees in the largest rainforest in captivity. Go on an extraordinary adventure, enjoy spectacular views across our Biome and learn why rainforests are so important.
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 bus 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.
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are now welcomed into our outdoor garden on an on-going daily basis. Dogs are allowed to enjoy the miles of paths onsite and in the outer estate, providing they are kept on a lead at all times, and with their owners. We ask owners to keep their dogs away from play areas and the arena. You will not be allowed to take your dog into the Biomes or in any of our buildings, except for the Visitors’ Centre, Ticketing and the Shop, and under the Link Canopy. We provide water bowls and doggy bins around site. If you do not want to take your dog into the Project, we have some dedicated shaded car ports where dogs may be safely left in the car. There is water available and our stewards patrol the area.
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.
