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…

Choose a session to suit you

Please note that a valid Eden admission ticket is required for all the sessions, in addition to the ticket for the relevant session. We advise skaters to arrive at the Visitor Centre at least 30 minutes prior to their booked skating slot.

General skating sessions

Price: £7 adult (aged 16+), £6 child, £24 family (any combination of four people)
Our public skate sessions are 40 minutes long and begin on the hour.

Skating aids

Price: £4 per session
Our penguin skating aids (featured in the video on this page) are ideal for helping young skaters to gain confidence on the ice. They can be hired for any public skating session, but pre-booking online is advisable.

The penguins are 78cm tall and although there is no minimum height restriction, the user does need to be able to walk and reach the handle. The maximum height for use is 120cm (3' 11¼"). The charge covers the full 40-minute session and there are no refunds or part-refunds if the penguin is not used or is only used for part of the session. Bookings are non-refundable.

Snowman skating aids are also available for hire, which are ideal for taller children and those with accessibility needs. The snowmen are larger at 95cm tall and although there are no height restrictions, we recommend them for users taller than 120cm (3' 11¼").

Meet Father Christmas and his elves - Saturday 24 November 2018 to Monday 24 December 2018

24 November – 24 December (selected dates only*)

Every year Father Christmas and his elves set up camp here at the Eden Project. There are letters to sort, presents to deliver, and a very important sleigh to prepare. Father Christmas is keen to meet you and your children, so they can help. Inside the cosy tent you’ll get to see ‘behind the scenes’, including the elves’ bunkbeds, the pigeonholes full of children’s letters, and all the stockings laid out ready for the big day. After settling down for a story beside an open fire, each child can enjoy a special moment with the man in red. 

 *For available dates and times, and to book, visit our website www.edenproject.com or call 01726 811972. Pre-booking is strongly advised.
