Eden Project Reviews
Not worth money

Overpriced greenhouse, not enough for young children to do, not really a wet weather day out as the biomes become really busy and can't see anything

Way too busy and understaffed, not worth it

We read the reviews and thought it looked like a great place out for the family, how mistaken we were. We drove in and were directed by attendants to park in the "lemon" carpark- and started walking on in with the other families of tourists down the path(in the rain with two small kids) only to be greeted 200m down the path by a sign saying it was an 0.8mile walk!!! We walked on in the rain and poor visibility past another two car parks which were half empty!! then we saw buses passing us full of people from the carparks we had just left!! This was after walking past attendants in the rain, and not passing one sign to a bus stop. We arrived at about 11am and were greeted by huge queues approx 20people per entrance line that were barely moving. Almost everyone in the lines was getting their photo taken for an ID and being made to give addresses, contact details etc etc, which made the whole process take forever. 25mins later we were finally able to pay the exorbitant "donation" and enter the "garden of Eden". The complex itself was interesting and plants remarkable for those who had not seen rainforest plants before, but the skyway was rather disappointing (especially since we had recently seen the one in Singapore and were expecting big things). The queues were massive and it was just overwhelmingly busy, tiny pathways that were like traffic jams, bumper to bumper everywhere. When waiting for food there was a 20+ minute wait in a 30-40 person line. There was only one person serving this entire line, and they had run out of plates and tray and were serving out into disposable picnic ware. This is not what you expect from a family friendly place with hungry young kids. The food was good quality at the prices you would expect from any theme park. There were not nearly enough staff on clearing though, and there were piles and heaps of dirty dishes and crockery everywhere. They were grossly underprepared for a high demand period. Additionally, the children's soft play area is not safe for young children. The mats are not anchored to the floor and there are significant gaps between them leaving exposed concrete, not the rubberized floor that is normally in play centers. With kids rough and tumbling off large foam blocks it is only a matter of time before a little head gets cracked into the floor. It is really unsafe. After that we managed to get an ice cream outside which was excellent, but there was only one server and within 10 minutes he was completely swamped and had over 20 -30 people waiting! Overall it is an interesting place, but grossly underprepared for holiday crowds. There are far better things to do in Cornwall than head to Eden. Collapse

Awful. Every year we come on holiday to Cornwall and we alternate between the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden. This year Eden let us down badly. There is busy times and stupidly busy times. With a good part of the tropical dome out of action for improvements for the sky walk the paths where dangerously over crowded with people doubling back. We where moving along like we where queuing up to board a training in rushbhour at Liverpool Lime St Station. Couldn't see a thing in the mass of commuters. Then to find all of the restaurants/coffee shops (that's from the bio domestic restaurant to the coffee shop at the entrance) tables not cleared of rubbish and empty cups. Short staffed Over priced. Children running around unsupervised, one larger child even pushed my daughter to the floor just so he could get to the front to see the owls on display. Came away with very little to that we had been to Eden for a day and to be honest we couldn't wait to leave. Won't be returning and will probably give The Lost Gardens of Heligan a miss next year with them being the same company Collapse

I was really excited at the prospect of visiting the Eden Project but left very disappointed. It was very expensive and so full of kids that it was difficult to appreciate the work and planting that had been achieved. It felt like a poor man's Disney with flowers. Walking above the main dining area and looking down on the food preparation areas I would definitely agree with the people who suggest taking a picnic. Collapse
