What is Eden Project?
Eden Project is an educational charity that supports social and environmental projects, not just in Cornwall but around the world. They also create great learning experiences, do valuable research, have stunning gardens and host art and music events.
What is there to do at Eden Project?
As well as gorgeous gardens surrounding the Eden Project there are two main Biomes, The Rainforest and the Mediterranean. Within the Biomes are all different species of plants, as well as sculptures, waterfalls and mock huts from certain parts of the world.
There are plenty of other activities to do when visiting the Eden Project, including:
• Rock climbing
• Skywire (extra charge)
• Special Events for kids (seasonal)
• Rainforest Aerial Walkway
When we visited the children enjoyed looking at all the different plants and reading the plaques about them and where they are usually found.
Visiting Eden Project
We visited out of Peak Season, and although it was cold and raining outside, it did get slightly hot in the Rainforest Biome.
Visiting out of Peak Season also meant that it wasn’t so busy, so we could walk around without it being too cramped.
What are the Entry Fees to Eden Project?
The entry fees for Eden Project are reasonably priced and under 5′s are free and if you choose to gift the Eden Trust the amount it would to cost you to enter, you can exchange your admission ticket for an Annual Pass to the Eden Project- which is fab if you’re not too far away as you can visit as much as you like.
The current ‘on the door’ Entry Fees as listed on the Eden Project website (July 2013) are:
Concessions (60+ and Students): £18.50
Children aged 5-16: £10.50
Children aged 0-4: FREE
The price in tickets does come down depending on how far in advance you book your tickets, as well as reduced ticket pricing for those who have travelled to the Eden Project by walking, cycling or public transport.
Our Thoughts on the Eden Project
Eden Project is probably one of my top places to visit in Cornwall.
I very much believe that Children learn more through seeing and talking about what they’re seeing rather than sitting in a classroom with books. The Eden Project is great for this!
