Eden boasts the world's largest rainforest in captivity, stunning gardens and world-class sculptures. The Eden Project does much more than offer a memorable day out in Cornwall.

Take in the sights and smells of our Mediterranean Biome, and explore our huge Outdoor Gardens.

At the Eden Project you'll discover the fascinating relationships between plants and people. You'll also find a full calendar of family events throughout the year and music festivals in the summer. As an educational charity we run transformational social and environmental projects locally and internationally.

Dogs are welcome at Eden. They must be kept on a lead at all times and are not permitted in most indoor areas, including the Biomes (with the exception of guide or assistance dogs). We have a limited number of shaded car parking spaces which are available on a first come, first served basis.

Invisible Worlds
NEW permanent exhibition opens 25 May

Welcome to Invisible Worlds: Eden’s incredible new exhibition revealing a world beyond your senses - too big, too small, too fast, too slow, too far away in space and time.

Our transformed Core building is home to Invisible Worlds, uncovering the true and extraordinary story of life on Earth. Every teaspoon of soil and drop of water is bursting with life, from zombie ants to minibeasts that can survive a vacuum.me and discover this hidden world through interactive exhibits, amazing artworks, hands-on experiments and exciting events.

Look up (and up…) at a gigantic ceramic sculpture, created in homage to one of the world’s smallest but most important organisms. Watch closely, it may have a few surprises in store... 

Explore incredible interactive exhibits which will transport you from the small to the vast and through 4.5 billion years of evolution.

Plus so much more, including a dedicated exhibitions gallery, all-new café and rock garden terrace, and daily workshops, stories and tours.

Don’t miss our May Half-Term Invisible Worlds Launch Week Activities (Click HERE), with a packed line-up of special guests and extraordinary events with something for all ages…

Join us this festive season as music fills the air and wintery wonders await.

Our Festival of Christmas will see a group of Cornwall’s best musicians playing all your festive favourites. This specially commissioned Eden ensemble will take their inspiration from the unique setting of our Mediterranean Biome and is sure to fill you with Yuletide cheer. 

And in our twinkly outdoor music pavilion there will be enchanting performances by a traditional brass band. Gather round our giant Christmas tree and be transported to Christmas past. 

Then wander through our spectacular Avenue of Lights before exploring our beautifully lit Biomes after dark. Discover exquisitely constructed willow lanterns and meet a cast of Christmas characters and magical creatures. Plus, throughout the day take part in a range of creative Christmas crafting activities. 

Our Christmas Concerts take place on the hour between 5-8pm on the following dates: 30 November - 17 December, Fri - Sun and 18-23 December and 27-30 December daily.

And don’t miss our Christmas Jumper Swap Shop!  Whether you’re tired of last year’s look or the kids have out grown a festive favourite, bring along your unwanted seasonal sweaters and exchange them for something new to you. 

Our Christmas Jumper Swap Shop launches on 23 November, and then continues on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 23 November to 17 December, then daily from 18-24 December and 27-30 December.
