This is definitely a beautiful place to visit with the gardens and biodomes a range of exotic and unusual plants. Prices were in my opinion steep at £27 but thankfully had purchased via Tesco Clubcard. Food arrangements also very odd. Three different types of food but layout meant having to queue for each seperatly and service slow not helping. Food prices als expensive.

Our party of 4 visited just the other day and were blown away by all the sights and sounds. The gardens outside the domes were beautiful and, once inside the biodomes, you're transported to other worlds. Obviously very warm and humid in the tropical areas and we appreciated the 'cold room'. So much to see. Don't try to rush - take time to sit and ponder. The ice creams are the best ever - which was a welcome treat as the day we visited was scorching.

This was my 3rd visit to the Eden Project and it continues to be a great day out. The outdoor areas are full of colour and fragrant plants. The biomes are a great chance to see tropical plants from around the world and learn about sustainable uses for them. The food in the restaurants is very good, so plan on having lunch somewhere and there are is an endless supply of photo opportunities. Great for all ages. My only complaint was the lack of drinking fountains outside the biomes.

We visited here through a coaching holiday & were taken aback of how beautiful it was. The biodomes are spectacular & can offer such a vast array of amazing sights. We were fortunate to see in the undergrowth one of the jungle birds with her little chick in the jungle biodome. As a charity based project they offer an amazing array of display & artwork which cannot be described enough on here. This is a must for anybody as what they have created & continually creating can only be described as breathtaking. There are plenty of places that offer different types of food & drink which are located center of the biodomes. They do cater for wheelchair access & are very helpful if needing assistance no matter what. Splendid day out & all money spent is in a good cause.

Impressive and unique architecture no doubt. Everything from plant collection to facilities are very satisfying. Love the rainforest biome to death. What an amazing amount of biodiversity, flora and fauna. Enjoyed the canopy walkway. Impressive that there are tropical plants such as banana tree growing outside the biome. Ashame that the tallest canopy walkway have to be shut when we were there due to high temperature (++45’C). Also some of the nooks and crannies in the rainforest biome were off limits, we love exploring them. No idea where or how to get to the zip wire flying fox(?) outside the biome as its not mentioned in the map and no directory. Suggest some improvement is to reduce the amount of choices of recycling bins in the foodhall in the Biomes entrance, there are simply too many bin choices and are confusing. It takes an average person 10 secs to figure it out and once finish sorting the recycables then everyone have no idea where the used plates and cups goes to? My observation reveals that the push trollies are always filled with large plastic trays which prevent anyone from using the trolley for placing the trays, i presume the trolley are ment to hold all the plates and cups on trays just like ikea? (Please copy ikea’s idea as ikea has done all the hardwork and spent millions in perfecting the system, and is extremely similar to your system). Also there is a lack of water filling station as the one available is located in the mexican food hall which is very hidden away. It should be visible and next to or close to the toilet or entrances to biomes or near the stairs. The mexican section is also quite hidden at the back which is a shame as we thought there is only one foodhall (the main one). We only find it out when we were looking for the hidden water filling station. Not enough attention is given to EVE and its surrounding. Seems like even the staffs does not know who EVE is? (She’s the magnificent beauty when you found her)
