“Love it!”

Written on: 07/03/2013 by Ex_Aussie (1 review written)

I live 20 minutes drive from the Eden project and with my family's annual pass we go at least once a month! I can only assume that people who complain about it are just a little sheltered?! The car parking is free and monitored constantly with staff directing you to the closest spaces, if you have to park far away there is a free buss every few minutes down to the main entrance. There is ever sheltered parking for the people who feel the need to drag their dogs out and leave them in the car… Read Full Review

“I have visited The Eden Project on three occasions,...”

Written on: 30/05/2009

I have visited The Eden Project on three occasions, 2006, 2007 and 2009, at the request of my grandchildren. Food: poor and expensive.
Expensive parking and entrance costs - particularly for children.
Has begun to look grubby and dated - needs an urgent face lift!
Cost of items in 'the shop' are ridiculous.
Does little to encourage people like myself to visit Cornwall… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2008 by Houltie (2 reviews written)

We turned up on a showery day, having struggled to get around a St Austel 'short cut' - come in from via the north if you can. Once parked, an efficient free shuttle bus takes you down to the entrance.
The pre-registered gift-aided member's tickets allowed us to enter quickly and to return anytime within the next year; although the latter is of little use if you don't live locally, it prevents the tax man getting his cut. Some unscrupulous 'members' try to sell theirs on through auction… Read Full Review

Winstonsmith's Response to Houltie's Review

Written on: 15/08/2008

I agree with this review because...I've been to the eden project a couple of times and yes, the one problem can be the food and drink pricing, but as with most captive audencies it's not too bad - no more or less than most other attractions.
<br/>So taking packed lunches is a very good idea.
<br/>Remember though that eden is a slightly different attraction, it isn't a theme park, a lot of it is outdoors - so if it's raining take brollys ect. Ideally, go on a hot sunny day - when everyone else is down on the beaches it's quieter and gives kids more chance to get involved in many of the educational stuff that they do.

We visited the Eden project in October 2004. No queues, good food, brilliant biomes and good gift shop. Weather was great. We stayed at a lovely B&B just down the road called Eden view bed and breakfast. Hotel standards for B&B prices… Read Full Review

“St Austell, Cornwall The Eden Project - Myself and...”

Written on: 19/04/2004 by Hamilton1969 (1 review written)

St Austell, Cornwall The Eden Project - Myself and partner (34 and 23) attended with the two children. there seemed very little for the kids to do and their highlight of the day was the tractor ride back to the car park.

The food was excellent if pricy and the dining area was well laid out.

We felt the day out would have been more suited to an older couple or perhaps someone with green fingers… Read Full Review

“We visited The Eden Project in August 2002. ”

Written on: 19/08/2002 by Richard. (1 review written)

We visited The Eden Project in August 2002.

Arrival at the site was no problem-it is well sign posted from St Austell but we were also helped by the timing of our visit (see later).

Car parking is extensive but shaded parking is very limited. Discounts are offered for people using more environmentally friendly transport such as bikes.

The project is sited in a converted quarry and arrival treats visitors to a superb view over the site. Walking down the sloped walkways between scores of flags… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2003

Update on my review from 2002.
<br>
<br>We returned to the Eden project in late July, 2003 and once again thorougly enjoyed our visit.
<br>
<br>This time we had longer to look around some of the exhibits outside the Biomes. I would especially recommend the video showing the process of building the project which contains some superb footage flying over the site.
<br>
<br>We also spent more time enjoying the floral displays along the walkways which sweep down to the biomes.
<br>
<br>The standards of food are still excellent although, because we were visiting during the extended opening, the restaurant menu only offered fish and chips.
<br>
<br>The only disappointment was that the project now only opens until 8pm on the late night openings instead of 9.30pm. This was due to the low visitor numbers who took advantage of the late night opening in 2002, however it does mean that, during the summer, visitors cannot experience the magical effect of the site when it is floodlit (unless there is a apecial event such as a concert etc).
<br>
<br>In spite of this (minor) point I would still heartily recommend a visit.
