We had been here before just after they had built it. Disappointing to see that you are not treated as anything special by being a member of the Eden Project and you still need to stand in the queue to get in. Best to see just one area that you are interested in as you would be there for a long time to get to see all of the projects that are available. Much more needed for people who have difficulty in walking and you have to walk around a lot 🤪 should be able to hire scooters or something like that to help you get around because you can not always bring your own with you especially if you live a long way away.
The gardens themselves were lovely and a nice day out but for the money you pay I would say don't bother, the whole place is just one massive cash grab and the food and prices were ridiculous, £4 for a cheese sandwich had a bland cheese and then some fool has decided that a sweet cinnamon chutney would work in a cheese sandwich, waited for twenty five minutes to receive a Mozzarella and tomato skewer that doesn't even require cooking only to find out that it had been sitting on the side for fifteen minutes despite telling us it would be brought over, if I hadn't mentioned how long it was taking I'd probably still be waiting now.Also signs and maps are near impossible to locate which I assume has been done deliberately to make you buy the six pound map that was smaller then a piece of A4 paper.
Way to expansive for what you get. The gardens aren’t that elaborate or impressive and you almost trip over all the shops and stalls which make it seem like one big cash cow. They say the project has an educational purpose however we found the information and explanations in the gardens very limited. This is more an amusement park for the masses than a botanical garden worth your time and money.
Such an amazing place doing such great work. I would highly recommend coming here. I've seen reviews saying it's pricey for what it is but I would disagree completely. I think they are doing some incredible work showcasing what a biodiverse planet we have and the importance of sustainability in the day to day things we do. I learn so much here please come along and take everything in
Really interesting seeing this seasons exhibits live earth The domes are impressive and the gardens are lovely. You can take dogs into the gardens but not into the exhibits or domes. It seems pricey but its well worth a visit. Take a picnic if you like and visit the shop on the way out
