The Eden Project was built in a 160-year-old exhausted china clay quarry near St Austell, in Cornwall. It was established as one of the Landmark Millennium Projects to mark the year 2000. You could fit the Tower of London in the Rainforest Biome. The Guinness Book of Records heralds the Biomes as the biggest conservatories in the world.
The Eden Project is an exciting attraction where you can explore your relationship with nature, learn new things and get inspiration about the world around you.
If you're coming from outside Cornwall, take the M5 southbound to Exeter, where the motorway splits. Take the A30 and continue until you reach the Innis Downs junction (A391) from which Eden is well signposted.
Please note that the Google Map on this page directs westbound traffic from the A390 from St Blazey via Cornhill Road to the Eden Project. We do not recommend taking this narrow route. It is better to continue to the A391 and follow the signs to Eden from there.
