Eden Project

Overview

The Eden Project, an educational charity, connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future. Our visitor destination in Cornwall, UK, is nestled in a huge crater. Here, massive Biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants, exhibitions and stories serve as a backdrop to our striking contemporary gardens, summer concerts and exciting year-round family events. Registered charity number 1093070 (The Eden Trust). Money raised supports our transformational projects and learning programmes.

We welcome all types of mobility vehicles and we also have a number of manual wheelchairs (approx 40) which are free of charge and available to borrow on a first come first served basis (*booking isn’t necessary for the manual chairs*). These chairs are stored in the accessible parking areas Apple 1 & 2.

We have six powered chairs (subject to operational availability) which are available to book in advance; we recommend one month's notice to avoid disappointment. The weight limit for these chairs is 21 stone.

If you would like to book a powered chair please call the Box Office Team on 01726 811911.

We have three access designated car parks in Apple 1, Apple 2 and Banana. These are not solely limited to those who are in possession of a Blue Badge but can also be utilised by those who have mobility issues, require a wheelchair or have organised access assistance.

In addition to this we can also offer closer parking to Park-and-ride bus stops, which take a direct route to the Visitor Centre and, if appropriate, we can organise a member of the Eden Team to pick you up from your car and take you straight to the Visitor Centre.
