The Eden Project is internationally known for its work around man’s relationship with plants. There are a host of opportunities to relax and unwind at Eden, with family, or friends, or on your own. Take a slow stroll round the biomes and outdoor areas; soak up the sights, sounds and smells that change with the seasons; investigate the art installations; enjoy exploring with children, or without.

Right now, they are limiting entry numbers, for everyone’s protection, and timed slots must be booked, if you plan to go, so there are not the crowds that are usually there. This means it’s a great time to visit.

For October half term, from 17 October to 1 November, the Halloweden displays are on show – safe but spooky.

Ice Skating will reopen on 17 October as well, with reduced numbers. Make sure you book. Tickets are currently released until 29 November, and the next batch will be released nearer the time.

Eden have introduced new Story Walks, by Kneehigh Theatre Company, via the Walk with Me app.

If you have a Locals’ pass, your entry will have been automatically extended from 31 October to 30 November. You will be sent renewal information for 1 December. If you’ve not got a Locals’ Pass yet, it offers unlimited entry all year round, for approximately half the price of a regular ticket, on proof of residency in Cornwall or Devon.

The Eden Project is one of the most accessible tourist attractions around, if you, or someone in your party, has special requirements in that area.
