An unforgettable experience in an epic location. Its home is a dramatic global garden the size of thirty football pitches, nestling like a lost world in a crater overlooking St Austell Bay. One of its giant conservatories is a majestic rainforest cathedral, the other is host to the fruits of the Mediterranean and the flowers of South Africa and California. Outside in the landscaped grounds you will find tea, lavender, sunflowers and hemp.
It is a place to tell a hundred stories about the connection between plants and people. From cocoa and coffee to bananas and rubber. From paper and wine to perfume and brewing. From medicine to construction, and so much more.
There's an ever-growing variety of things for the kids to enjoy year round, with fantastic play equipment, outdoor trails, and even adventure activities (additional cost applies). Don't miss the Rainforest Canopy Walkway; climb above the treetops and get a bird's eye view of the Rainforest from high above the forest floor!
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).
