The Eden Project

  • About
    Welcome to Eden. We're open every day of the year with the exception of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

    From October 30 to March 25 the gates open at 10am and close at 4.30pm with the last entry at 3pm. From March 26 to October 28 the gates open at 9am, the site at 9.15am and we close at 6pm with the last entry at 4.30pm.

    Eden is all about man's relationship with and dependence upon plants. Much of our food, our clothes, our shelter and our medicines come from the plant world. Without plants there would be no oxygen for us to breathe, no life on earth.

    The Eden Project is a showcase for all the questions and many of the answers. But Eden is not a worthy, over-serious, guilt-ridden place; nor does it preach. It is about education and communication of the major environmental issues of the day, always presented in an engaging, involving, even humorous way.

    More than 1,000,000 plants representing 5,000 species from many of the climatic zones of the world. Many of these can grow in the mild conditions of Cornwall, others need greenhouses and that is where Eden's two gigantic Biomes - the biggest conservatories in the world - come in.

    In addition to the plants, art is central to Eden's messaging, and the site is liberally peppered with fascinating, thought-provoking works and installations.
