Originally a disused Cornish clay mine, the Eden Project was developed and opened in 2001. This educational charity encourages visitors to appreciate nature, learn new things and get inspiration about the surrounding world. Eden Project features some gigantic enclosures (one a tropical environment, another emulating the Mediterranean) of adjoining domes that house plant species from around the world and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames and create a stunning landscape, set within the varied lush surroundings which also include art and sculpture.
The Eden Project is open seven days a week, excluding Christmas Day. Admission tickets are valid for a year from booking, but advance ticket booking won't guarantee entry on a busy day so do arrive early.
Suitable for anyone aged 18 or over.
Please check the venue's website for information on any partial site closures due to special events that may be happening in the domes. Please note, tickets are sent via post five working days from placing the order and must be presented on arrival.
