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…
